At a time when immigration is everywhere, it is not surprising that the film industry is following the trend. "Crossing Over" is a film that focuses on "how the system works and who are the people caught up in it and forced to do fraudulent things." Writer and director Wayne Kramer is a naturalized U.S. citizen from South Africa who understands first hand how difficult it is to achieve legal status in the U.S. This film is set in L.A. and promises to address immigration in much the same way as "Crash" tackled racism. Harrison Ford, Sean Penn, and Ray Liotta play characters whose lives intersect though each has his own story.
