Immigration under the current administration is indelibly marked by powerful media images of migrant caravans, thousands of Central American families walking hundreds of miles through Mexico desperate to attain asylum in the United States. Acclaimed filmmaker Sebastian Junger (Academy Award®-nominated RESTREPO and KORENGAL) reteams with Nick Quested (Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria and the Rise of ISIS) and National Geographic to chronicle the course of events that would transform Acapulco from tourist destination to murder capital in less than a decade.
As explicit in its indictment as it is in its graphic presentation of the horrors these families are desperate to escape, this documentary is a wake-up call to those who refuse to acknowledge the role the U.S. has played in allowing drugs and money to move effortlessly across the same border where endangered families are refused entry each day.
