Aspiring young model Laura (Sigman) enters a beauty pageant dreaming of a future far away from her grim life in Tijuana. Instead she finds herself caught up in a nightclub massacre and kidnapped by cartel gunmen. Just when things couldn't get bleaker, she finds out what drug Lino (Noe Hernandez) has planned for her.
That innocuous title disguises a Mexican thriller with genuine bite, though the hokey ending doesn't quite live up to the edgy plotting and Sigman's classy turn as a tough heroine in an impossible situation.
