Crossing Over is a dramatic film that deals with the topic of illegal immigrants struggling to make it the United States. The film stars Harrison Ford, Ray Liotta, and Ashley Judd. The movie focuses on several different immigrants from different countries and the various problems that they encounter. Talsima is one young immigrant who is struggling to find her way in high school while her parents work to get the whole family immigration status. One day Talsima does a class presentation where she speaks of sympathy for the hijackers who were involved in 9/11. The school notifies the FBI and Talsima and her mother are forced to go back to Bangladash.

Talsima is forced to flee the United States but many immigrants deal with that threat by doing whatever they can to stay in the country. Claire is another immigrant desperately trying to get her green card so she can live and work in the U.S. One day, she gets into an automobile accident with an immigration officer. Claire is beautiful and the officer decides to cut her a deal. If she has sex with him for a few months, he will manipulate her paperwork and get her a green card.

Gavin is another immigrant who lies about his religious affiliation in order to be able to stay in the U.S. He pretends to be a devout theological student. Javier finds himself caught up in the dangerous world of illegal immigrant by running a side business producing false paperwork. He is murdered by some nefarious gang membes. Yong Kim is a young member of an immigrant family who gets up in the gang world. The film shows how desperate all these immigrants are to stay in the United States and how complex and treacherous the process of immigration can be.
