Did You Know?


The compartment used to hide immigrants in the back of J's pick-up truck doubled as storage for camera and sound equipment. The actors and filmmakers drove the truck back and forth across the US/Mexico border numerous times during production and were never asked to show its contents. See more »

very realistic
3 May 2010 | by kloeb2See all my reviews

Living in Arizona on the border we have always dealt with the issues of illegal aliens. Currently w/the drug cartels and the legislation passed, it has really come to the forefront. This was a truly empathetic, yet realistic movie. "Coyote" is an awful word here. They are lowlife who prey on the unfortunate. It is sad that people who only want a better life are so exploited and even killed in that quest. While this is illegal..in the movie, these men try to temper it in a way that shows care for these people and won't get them killed. They, still however, profit off their plight. One of them, however, pays the ultimate price. Don't miss it.
