Set in the beautiful, but poverty stricken region of Southwest Texas known as The Big Bend and the corresponding Chihuahuan desert of Northern Mexico, the story depicts the lives of three local marijuanos, whose endless obsession to get high catapults them into the dangerous world of drug smuggling. Their journey brings instant success: drugs, money, prostitutes, and notoriety - among their peers, and cops - both bad and good. They soon discover the world of drug smuggling may prove much easier to get into than out of - alive anyway. Follow these young men through a world few know intimately, a land of smugglers, outlaws, and desperados, where every living creature seems poised to bite, strike, stick or sting. Witness their fight for survival as they battle forces that threaten not only their lives, but their souls as well.
