Plot summary
24 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble, working as a farmworker, is disliked and distrusted by the others, who suspect him of being a cop or immigration agent. Paco (actor Alejandro Rey), an illegal immigrant, is one of his tormentors.

A forest fire emergency leads to Kimble and others working on fire control. Paco's wife, Maria, follows the men to the fire scene. She goes into labor and is seen by the nurse, Doris (actress Beverly Garland), at the first-aid tent. The nurse declares Maria needs emergency surgery, but there is no doctor, and the fire has cut off the roads. Kimble wants to help, but an eager radio news reporter is snooping around and threatens to uncover his identity.
