In the Mexican point out of Michoacán, Dr. Jose Mireles, a small-town medical professional known as “El Physician,” prospects the Autodefensas, a citizen uprising in opposition to the violent Knights Templar drug cartel. In the meantime, in Arizona’s Altar Valley – a slim, fifty two-mile-lengthy desert corridor known as Cocaine Alley – Tim “Nailer” Foley, an American veteran, heads a small paramilitary group identified as Arizona Border Recon, whose target is to stop Mexico’s drug wars from seeping throughout our border. Heineman embeds himself in the coronary heart of darkness as Nailer, El Physician, and the cartel each and every vie to provide their very own manufacturer of justice to a society wherever establishments have failed. The movie is a chilling, visceral meditation on the breakdown of purchase and the blurry line among fantastic and evil.
