Episode Summary

Episode 5
In this episode, we are introduced to Anjan Bacchu, and Indian computer programmer with dreams of success in Silicon Valley. We see his life and wedding in Bangalore, and learn of his concerns for leaving his new bride and ailing father behind. He researches high-tech jobs online, shops for what he imagines he'll need in America, and receives blessings at his temple. The episode ends as he leaves for the United States. Naima finds work teaching Arabic to university students, while Hatem takes a leadership role in an Arab-American community organization. José still plays in the rookie league while Ricardo makes a name for himself at the Minor League All-Star game. Their former teammate, Ramon, is found not guilty, but he is dropped by the Dodgers and must return home. The Flores family receives their visas–including a visitor's visa for their grandfather–and sets off for Kansas. We see them settling into their new house, and witness the children's first day at their new school.moreless
