Adam Fields is a rage-filled U.S. Border Patrol Agent who often crosses the line in his job. A member of a vigilante group, Fields decides to go undercover with a hidden camera and cross with a group of undocumented immigrants. His plan goes awry, however, when the group is forced to work for a drug ring. Suddenly, Fields realizes that he has more in common with the migrants and their search for home, family and freedom than he thought. Written by
I just caught a screening of this film in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It deals with racism and the experience of Mexicans crossing the US border for a better life; unfortunately that life is working in a crystal meth laboratory. I wish that it had more development about its main character, a self-hating Mexican-American
border guard, who goes undercover with a group of illegal aliens. He eventually gets a change of heart, once he crosses the border and develops a
cameraderie with his fellow workers, and realizes how harsh their reality is.
Two sequences were extremely powerful: One, where he confronts his dying
mother, and refuses to acknowledge her was powerful; the anger incredibly
convincing. The other was a scene with the workers singing about their trek into California, and how their only goal is to make a better life for their families.
It's worth checking out, especially since this appears to be a first time director with an edge.
