A modern Western inspired by the real-life "no man's land" areas along the Texas-Mexico border. While out on a father-son border patrol, Jackson kills a Mexican immigrant boy. When Jackson's father tries taking the blame, Jackson flees south on horseback, becoming a gringo "illegal alien" in Mexico. Chased by Texas Rangers and Mexican federales, Jackson journeys across Mexico to seek forgiveness from the dead boy's father only to fall in love with the land he was taught to hate.Written by
After reading the summary I thought it would be one of those border movies where people migrate, drugs get trafficked and patrols do their job.
However, I was pleasantly surprised this one had a surprising twist.
This movie is about guilt, forgiveness, family and life decisions - all packaged in a modern Western.
Cinematography, acting and plot were all outstanding, this is a movie you shouldn't miss.
Some reviewers may focus on the aspect of illegal immigration alone; while this is the initial plot of the movie, the further course of the film isn't focused on it.
