    Brief synopsis

    A tense examination of Mexico's multi-billion-dollar drug trafficking business, director Brian J. Bagley's gritty crime drama follows a naïve business journalist as he travels south of the border to interview the leader of the country's most notorious drug cartel. Jules Land was looking to jump-start his career when he requested an audience with the murderous former priest-turned-drug kingpin who now oversees a substantial portion of the drug flow into the United States. But it doesn't take Jules long to realize that he's in over his head, and as the situation intensifies he goes from trying to understand the principals behind the cartel's success to simply trying to escape before disappearing into the desert sands. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi All Movie Guide
