Academy Award® Winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. is a Border Patrol Officer in the New Mexico desert with a secret past that is about to catch up with him.
Patrolling part of the border between Mexico and America, Michael is good at his job, compassionate toward illegal aliens and tough on those who exploit them. While pursuing a "coyote" (someone who smuggles aliens over the border) who left a truckload of Mexicans to die, Michael inadvertently breaks up a meeting between drug-smuggling criminals.
The aborted gathering, it turns out, involved members of a vicious, L.A. gang that once included Michael as a member and prospective leader, unbeknownst to his wife (Sharon Leal). The gang's current leader, Drake (Omari Hardwick), demands that Michael help him work out a way to get the drugs or watch his family suffer the consequences.
Omari Hardwick, (The Guardian, Gridiron Gang), Sharon Leal (This Christmas, Dreamgirls), and Evan Ross (ATL, Pride), co-star in this hard-hitting thriller that pushes the action over the line.
