Peabody Award winning Don't Tell Anyone is the courageous story of Angy Rivera, an undocumented person living in the United States. Following her journey from Colombia to her position as the leader of a national movement, we see how Angy's courage and strength inspires those around her. Her bravery allows her to share her story of sexual abuse, a common experience among undocumented people. This touching film showcases the reality that millions of undocumented people face in America and the potential consequences if the truth about them is discovered.
