Along the border between the U.S. and Mexico in Arizona, Jim Hanson (Liam Neeson) a rancher and Vietnam war vet, is going through a tough time. His beloved wife just passed away from cancer and the bank is about to foreclose on his vast property.
But those are soon the least of his worries when his quiet life is suddenly disrupted by the unexpected arrival of two illegal immigrants crossing the border onto his land: a mother and her young son, who are desperately fleeing a brutal Mexican cartel.
After a fiery shootout leaves the mother dead, Jim find himself the reluctant guardian of her young boy, Miguel (Jacob Perez). The unlikely duo is now on the run from the relentless assassins and crooked cops. On their journey, Jim and Miguel’s contempt for each other will give way to understanding and compassion with Jim embracing his role as Miguel’s protector and stopping at nothing to get him to safety.
