Synopsis

Esai Morales, Moisés Arias and Mariel Hemingway star in this role-reversing fantasy about border politics. Don is a young itinerant worker hired by a wealthy Mexican-American family who owns a well whose waters are purported to be miraculous. When the family patriarch discovers that the white townspeople have been stealing his water, he orders the construction of a massive wall around his property to keep them out. Tensions between the family and the town boil over just as Don falls under the spell of the patriarch’s two daughters.
