Product Description
Watch the story of Turusma, a first-generation college applicant from a hard-scrabble urban high school. Turusma's story and choices provide a springboard for thought-provoking conversation among students who may represent the first in their families to attend college. This young man stands out as a role model, but also fully embodies all the conflicted emotions that first-generation college attendees can feel when they have to choose between staying close to home or following an opportunity that may take them far away. This video is the third of five installments of a documentary short that screened at film festivals around the world and won an award for educational excellence. Scene 3 introduces Turusma's family.
