Breadfruit & Open Spaces explores the journey of a group of Pacific Islander immigrants from the Federated States of Micronesia who are now living on Guam. This half-hour documentary profiles their struggle to hold their ground and find a voice on a new island, while maintaining ties to their families on their home island of Chuuk.
