Arnulfo Rubio, a young gun trafficker between the United States and Mexico, is being followed by ATF agent Hank Harris. After a risky mistake by Harris, Rubio makes a desperate decision: he smuggles the agent to Mexico. And while these two apparent enemies will slowly connect, they reach a dangerous place. And the only way out will be by trusting each other.
