Storyline

Miguel is the perfect coyote: dedicated, single-minded, his record unblemished. His home is the winding path of the migrant: the back alley gravel, the crumbled pavement, and last - the river. Despite this perfect record, Miguel is no stranger to death. His nickname, "El Maldito" hints of what we will soon see for ourselves, for Miguel seems haunted by the dead and dying. He comes upon them on desert roads; he hears their confessions, and takes part in their dying wishes. Miguel's house, much like the man himself, stands alone; yellowed photographs breathe the sigh of a life given over to a singular purpose - crossing his people to a new life. There are signs that this quiet struggle is soon to break. When a terrible wreck draws Miguel to the roadside, the order of his life comes to ruin, for Elena, the wreck's lone survivor, recognizes Miguel. Written by Greg Morgan

Different type of movie. Must see
8 March 2019 | by johnapplebee-95947See all my reviews

Invoice glad I came across this movie. With everything going on right now with the border issues, this was great timing. This film is about a man who's really good with getting people across the border to the USA by boat. He develops issues with a drug cartel who. Some into his area creating problems. The movie is slow for a while then it gets good. Things gets really good and the movie takes off from there. Loved the way they ended it. Must see
