A deadly incident at the southern border when a trio of patrol officers set up an impromptu road checkpoint somewhere in Trans-Pecos. Clearly with ultra low budget, it relied on the acting and script for attraction. While both were flawed, the film succeeded to bring forth an original slow-burn story on the often hidden brutality and corruption of the entrenched drug trade to both mules and LEOs.

This won't be what some people will expect but we liked it a lot. Gritty. Hopefully will make you do some thinking, as it did us. Pay close attention to dialog or you'll miss what's going on.

What are you seeing here?
-Well, he stopped there, and he's shuffling. Indentation is deeper here on this edge, so he probably switched the bag over to the other shoulder. Which probably means he's gonna start...
It means he's turning left.

Do you call your kids "wetbacks" and "Tonks"? I mean, do you say it like, "hey, Tonk, go to the bathroom," or, "come eat your food, Tonk," or...

Come on, now. How about that little kid you was tracking earlier? I mean, can we call them "drug mules," or is that gonna offend your delicate sensibilities?
-No, of course. I mean, sure. Yeah, they're mules. But they're still little boys underneath it.
Uh-uh, no, sir. That all changed when they picked up that AK, decided to become soldiers, and
they will be treated as such.
