JAVIER is the son of an infamous cartel leader and is forced to come to America with his best friend, Luis, and his family.

As an adult, Javier goes to a professional smuggling business to help get his family across the border. This is what he's been planning for since he was a little boy. When he finds out how much money he needs to get to help them get out safely, he joins forces with his best friend, LUIS. However, Luis is sprung over Penelope, a woman he just met.

Javier breaks into a bank as a cleaning lady to get the money to help his family come into America legally. However, he is nearly found out when the other cleaning lady is suspicious of him.

Javier has a flashback of the day he was forced to leave Mexico as a boy. It's the day a little girl brought his uncle's severed head to the Bautista base as a threat.

Javier shoots one of the smuggling bosses, EL MAESTRO, dead. He is finally free from threat.

During a flashback, Luis takes Javier’s mission into his own hands. This leaves Javier with the hope that everything will work out.
