A group of Mexican emigrants attempts to cross the Mexican-US border. What begins as a hopeful journey becomes a harrowing, bloody and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante and his loyal Belgian Malinois dog chase the group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous borderland. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they discover there's nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer.Written by

Sam is firing an M1 Garand, chambered in either .30 '06 or .308 (It's a sporterized version). Despite using such a heavy caliber, he demonstrates almost no recoil from his shots. Worse, he makes shots at distances that would likely only hit their target if he was in a prone (laying down) rather than a standing or kneeling position. See more »

Saw this film at the Toronto Film Festival. Surprised at the average ratings this film has received. An edge of the seat film, that tackles illegal immigration across the U.S Mexican border.
A simple, yet powerful story that made me re think illegal immigration, long after I had finished watching the movie.
The actors and dogs did a great job playing their part and the setting of the movie was ideal. Watching this movie in surround sound, made the suspense more intense. This movie could not have been released at a better time, due to its subtle message on illegal Mexican immigration. I would thoroughly recommend watching this movie and look forward to its release on DVD.
