|Hostile Border – Clip
Raised in the U.S., Claudia (22) is an undocumented immigrant living beyond her means in a twisted version of the American dream. When sheâ€™s arrested by the FBI for credit card fraud, Claudia is quickly deported to MÃ©xico. Speaking no Spanish and lost in her foreign â€œhomeland,â€� she reluctantly takes refuge at her estranged father’s cattle ranch. As she clashes with her unyielding father, her attempts to return home to the U.S. thrust her into a dangerous bond with a foreign smuggler, Ricky. Caught between her fatherâ€™s sermons, Ricky’s promises, and the encroaching military, Claudia must navigate a tightrope of impossible choices. Both a slow burning crime thriller and western, HOSTILE BORDER follows the transformative journey of a young woman confronting the high price of American ideals in the dark places between two cultures.
