Anapra, one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Mexicoâ€™s Juarez, lies twenty metres outside America. Faustino wants to escape from the gang he's working for. Having dipped into dollars he was supposed to be hiding, he's on the run. He and his friend, Arturo, have 36 hours to replace the missing money, or they're as good as dead. Watching over them is Saint Death.
