Event Time and Date
Who "belongs" in this country and who doesn't? WHEELS explores immigration, xenophobia and the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship through the eyes of Oscar, a 15 1/2 year old Salvadoran-American youth and the people he encounters on his first
journey through the maze of the DMV.
Oscar is a young man on the move. WHEELS tells the story of Oscar's first steps toward independence, as he steps off the bus and into the Department of Motor Vehicles. In pursuit of his learner's permit and ultimately his driver's license, Oscar encounters a range of perspectives on freedom, mobility, and the dreams and realities associated with U.S. citizenship.
