Eighteen-year-old Guiseppe Bellini leaves family and home to sail for the New World, a land of milk and honey. But there he finds a land of danger, intolerance and the opportunity to expand his horizons. In the midst of frontier violence, where Anglos, Mexicans and Indians are struggling to control the land, Bellini and his beautiful Mexican bride, Ana Maria, vow to raise their family somewhere other than the lawless confines of Tucson, Arizona. They journey into the forbidden mountains of central Arizona and establish a lifelong bond of friendship with an Apache chief and his people. “The Immigrant” is a gripping and historically accurate romantic drama of one man’s desire to understand a strange land and a culture alien to his own.
