When their truck suddenly breaks down, a migrant named Moises (Gael García Bernal) leads 13 others on a trek through the harsh terrain along the U.S.-Mexico border. Inconvenience soon turns into horror as the sounds of gunfire shatter the tranquil desert landscape. Desperate and on the run, the survivors find themselves in a fight for their lives against a psychotic sniper and his vicious hunting dog. Moises must now use his wits and instincts to kill the relentless predator before he claims more victims.
Sinopsis: Moisés (Gael García Bernal) junto con otros indocumentados están cruzando a pie un estrecho camino de la frontera entre México y Estados Unidos buscando tener nuevas oportunidades del otro lado y reencontrarse con sus seres queridos. Este grupo es descubierto por Sam (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) un “vigilante” demente que disfruta eliminando a los migrantes. Ante la inclemencia del desierto, Moisés y Sam se enrolan en una persecución en la que el más fuerte sobrevivirá.

Centro Presente has produced the short documentary “The Invisible Crisis: The Female Face Of Forced Migration” to bring the stories of Central America women to light. Please take a moment to watch it here.
One group of women perhaps with the most to lose under a Trump Presidency are the women migrants fleeing violence and social instability in their home countries. Victims of systemic human rights abuses in their countries of origin, they come to the U.S. seeking to survive and to save the lives of their children. Yet upon arrival to this “nation of immigrants” they again see their human rights abused by a system that fails to recognize their plight and their humanity.Until now their stories have been invisible.
Join us for a showing of this documentary followed by a conversation with one of these women about the realities confronted by undocumented immigrants in these times of Trump. Please let us know if you are interested in Centro Presente coming to your Congregation, organization or school to host such an event by sending an email to Patricia Montes, firstname.lastname@example.org
