Shura, is a documentary is a story of an octogenarian woman’s powerful commitment and mission in providing aid to migrants crossing the border and helping to save lives in the harsh and ruthless elements of the Arizona desert.

Shura captures the fragility of the situation on the border, vividly portrays a failed border wall, and vibrantly captures Shura and her team of volunteers who exemplify kindness and commitment. In a world were politicians mostly take extremes and posture for political points, Shura is a powerful reminder that there are people out here doing everything they can to make a real difference.
