An El Paso private investigator, Johnny Cash, encouraged by Gloria, his receptionist, takes a charity case investigating the disappearance of a young woman in Juarez, Mexico. Hundreds of girls and young women have disappeared in the area after coming to work at maquiladoras - small factories; some corpses are found with missing body parts. Johnny and Gloria interview the missing woman's boss, look for her boyfriend, and talk to a co-worker. The cops are corrupt, so they are on their own. All leads take them to an isolated clinic. Will they be in time to find and save the missing woman? Written by
Don't waste your time or money on this one. Horrible writing, acting, directing, shooting, scoring, continuity, etc. A truly huge waste of time and film.
This "movie" (quotes intentional) attempts to explain the tragic and ongoing senseless murders of young women in Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico in the most simplistic and insulting terms--obviously little if any meaningful research was done.
Cahill (who definitely shouldn't quit his day job) couldn't even be bothered to film a few shots on location. Instead, the entire fiasco was shot in the California desert. Perhaps someone should have told him that not all deserts look alike, even if sophomoric tripe does.
