Logline: A beautiful El Salvadorian woman flees abuse and falls in love with a hard-hearted coyote along a deadly journey through the treacherous Mexican migration route.

 

The story is set along a dangerous trail to the Mexican border, where every migrant is prey to assault, extortion, sexual abuse and murder perpetrated by a wide range of violent characters.

The story captures Eva, a proud knife-wielding heroine born into circumstances of poverty that force many women into a life of prostitution and abuse is willing to risk it all to be free. Her aspirations for education and a better life fuel a deep hatred for all men, until she meets a skilled coyote named Dragon, the one man that can protect her dream from surrounding dangers.

Their journey to freedom is engulfed with opportunistic criminals, rapists, thieves and ruthless gangs all waiting to ambush these migrants in hostile lands where cartels are the law.
