In Ellis, De Niro narrates and stars as one of the migrants whose pursuit of a new life expired at the now-shuttered Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital. Following its opening in 1902, approximately 1.2 million people passed through the facility, where the Statue of Liberty can be seen from the windows. Upon arrival, some travelers were approved, but many, due to illness or simply fatigue, were denied access and hospitalized. Languishing in a sort of purgatory awaiting their fate, many were never discharged.
