Based on the true events of September 2014, when 43 college students disappeared after a night of violence in the Mexican state of Guerrero, Detective Emilia Cruz is detailed to a national task force to investigate. She’s the junior member and the only woman.
As tensions within the task force soar, a diplomat from the United States embassy offers Emilia $50,000 to end the investigation into the missing students.
He claims it is delaying the extradition of a famous jailed cartel leader known as the Barrel Bomber, who escaped from prison in Mexico twice before. But is the diplomat who he says he is?
