Two very distinct individuals from different backgrounds meet their fate in the unrelenting Arizona desert...
25 March 2013 | by SammyFilms82See all my reviews

A beautiful, controversial film. I saw it at the cast and crew screening in Boyle Heights. Well directed. An engaging story that needs to be told--from the looks of it, this film will cause controversy among viewers (which is a good thing). More films that deal with these issues need to be seen and told. I recommend folks check out this film and support it--many people complain that there is not enough Latino content--well, here is a film that not only showcases Latino talent but also highlights the complexities that surround immigration. For an indie film, I was surprised by the story, the actors involved and the directing.
