    • Synopsis
    • Mexico today: A world where the cartels are a tragic reality, and violence is a part of daily life. Deported after 20 years as an illegal in the USA, Benny Garcia returns to the tranquility of his sleepy rural town...or so he thinks. Much has changed, and opportunities to earn an honest living are few. With limited options before him, "El Benny" reluctantly joins his boyhood friend, working for the ruthless Don Jose and the Reyes gang. As the rewards from the narcotic trade come his way - money, women, respect - El Benny is swept along in the current of corruption and endless violence. But the life of a "Narco" has no future. Jealousy, a misstep, betrayal...all can bring about a sudden downfall. Once in, there's only one road out, on a path paved with pain, destruction, and death. Benny's rags to riches rise is about to take a violent detour...
