Synopsis

"Mexico is in turmoil. Once safe tourist cities and farming communities are now some of the most dangerous places on earth. Murder is a daily occurrence, and masses of dismembered bodies are being found dumped in the plain sight. Entire towns are ravaged by drug dealers and lawless cartels, and the country’s most notorious offenders are illegally leaving state prison in mass because no one is immune to bribery, especially the wardens. Adding to the bedlam, the countrywide citizen gun-ban has rendered law abiding folks defenseless against the rash of violence. Tens and thousands of men, women and children have been killed this year alone, and whole cities are being abandoned. Santa Altagracia is a proud town, a rural commonwealth of artists and farmers. Untouched by the corruption of Mexico’s larger cities, the families of Santa Altagarcia are diligent people, devout catholics and fulfilled with their modest lifestyle. When a drug dealer infects the town, however, the balance crumbles and the townspeople are pitched into an unfathomable state of violence and terror. In order to safeguard the town, to retaliate, Fidencio Morales, and his three nephews must face this desperado with their own unrefined brand of justice. But the old adage-when one falls, another takes its place-rings true, and before they know it, the Morales family is at war with Mexico’s most ruthless drug dealer, Del Diablo martillo. Ripped straight from the headlines, The Cocaine Saints tells a raw, moving tale of loss and outrage, courage and redemption, and it shows how one unlikely family will pull together against all probability and face the impossible, even if the undertaking cost them their lives.
