Two men, unknown to one another, cross paths somewhere in the hot Arizona desert. One man is an undocumented immigrant making his way back to his family in Tucson after being deported, and the other is a wounded Mexican drug runner, hoping to return to Mexico safely. An introduction and small talk leads to a discussion about the legitimacy of their actions. Although both men are breaking the law, this short film sheds some light on the reality of what some chose to do in order to survive.
