Outside of Juarez, Mexico, a man named Arturo spends his days working odd jobs and keeping a low profile. However, when his friend Faustino gets his girlfriend pregnant, and then steals money from drug lords to smuggle her and the baby into the U.S., Arturo's life gets thrown into chaos. Helping his friend get the money to give back to the drug lords won't be easy in Juarez's crime-ridden world of gangs, drugs, and human traffickers. Over everything looms Santa Muerte, Saint Death, a constant reminder of just how dangerous the Mexico-U.S. border can be.
