Synopsis
The film begins with Mexican teenager Arnulfo Rubio (Kristyan Ferrer) procuring and stowing weaponry into his SUV. But the novice proves to lack ruthlessness and gets intercepted by an ATF agent Hank Harris (Tim Roth), who gets ambushed and ends up kidnapped. Rubio then proceeds to embark on the 600-mile delivery to his uncle in Mexico (Noé Hernández) where the drama unfolds.

Rather than the probable action-packed scenes, director Gabriel Ripstein opted for a realistic, low-key progression that is close to rivalling, or at least echoes Harmony Korine’s Gummo.

English thespian Tim Roth shines again, this time effortlessly as an American officer. He has a quiet yet intense presence that exudes dominance even as a kidnapee who held no upper hand, a gratifying redemption since his previous tour-de-force performance in United Passions.
