Arriving At Ellis Island

A point of view shot from a boat pulling up to the main processing building on Ellis Island, is followed by shots of immigrants congregating in front of the building, reclaiming their luggage off a truck, segregated and mixed groups of men and women waving at the camera, looking forlornly at the New York skyline from the pier and from behind a caged window.
