U.S. Border Patrol agent Charlie Smith just wants to do a good job and provide for his wife. But between her demands for a more affluent lifestyle and the importuning of Charlie's partner Cat to take part in illegal activities in exchange for bribes, Charlie gets caught up in helping smuggle illegal immigrants across the Texas border. When one of them, a young Mexican girl named Maria, loses her baby to abductors who plan to sell the child, Charlie decides to take a stand for her and against the corruption he's fallen into.

This has got to be one of Jack Nicholson's finest acting jobs. His portrayal of an emotionally unsatisfied Border Patrol agent stuck trying to find peace within himself is riveting to watch. The soundtrack is outstanding also with that simple truth " you can lose more than you hope to gain on the other side of the border".
