Palenque, Chiapas, Mexico

Alan (17), an unaccompanied Guatemalan migrant, looks for water to brush his teeth beside the train tracks where 'La Bestia', or the Beast, passes through, the train that many migrants have illegally ridden north. That morning, he escaped from a bus where Mexican immigration agents were detaining migrants. He wants to ask for asylum in the U.S., where he hopes to stay with family members in Maryland.
