A Place to Breathe explores the universality of trauma and resilience through the eyes of immigrant and refugee healthcare practitioners and patients. The film toggles between immigrant and refugee communities in two cities —Lowell, MA, and Oakland, CA to illustrate their varied struggles to assimilate, preserve cultural identity, and, most prominently, heal from the traumas that sent them to the U.S.. This documentary intertwines the personal journeys of those who are transcending their own obstacles by healing others and highlights the creative strategies by which immigrant communities in the U.S. survive and thrive.
