Silver side (Touristic Route): In 2000, L. revisits all the places and countries she went through between 1938 — when she fled Austria at 12 years old with her family because they were Jewish — and 1951, when she left France to NY on a steamer.

Golden side (Survival Route): In 2014, S. flees Honduras, crosses Guatemala and Mexico on foot and on the top of merchandise trains. She arrives a month later in Houston, Texas, after an extremely dangerous journey.
