The body of an unidentified immigrant is found in the Arizona Desert. In an attempt to retrace his path and discover his story, director Marc Silver and Gael Garcia Bernal embed themselves among migrant travelers on their own mission to cross the border, providing rare insight into the human stories which are so often ignored in the immigration debate.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A heartbreaking tale of migrants from Central America who risk their lives to cross into the U.S., some dying annually in the Arizona desert."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"Immigration has been a hot-button subject matter for film, especially the kind of doc films that play at Sundance, for years. The problem with Who is Dayani Cristal? is that it simply doesn't add enough to the conversation to make it memorable."
‑ Brian Tallerico, Film Threat
"There's a really good documentary in Who Is Dayani Cristal?, or perhaps there is a strong narrative if they focused on it, but given the problematic nature of the narrative segments, I'm going to go with the documentary portion."
‑ Fred Topel, CraveOnline
