Tracks in the Sand: A Tale of the Border Patrol
It didn't all happen just this way but it could have... Marcos Ayala deals in drugs and whores. Like any entrepreneur in Juarez, he has problems; one of them is how to get his wares past the Border Patrol. A renegade yanquí soldier offers a new technique but there is risk in letting an American into the organization. Luz Ortega is another problem. Ayala just bought the young peasant girl and she is unwilling to learn her new trade. Luz has discovered an iron will and cunning and she intends to complicate his life in ways he doesn’t foresee. Tom "The Real" Diehl thinks he has seen it all while wearing the Border Patrol's gold badge. Then he and his rookie partner follow tracks in the sand and catch a group of smuggled aliens - and the game changes. For Ken Travis, fresh from the Academy, the real learning process begins then; he finds there are drugs and guns and men willing to kill over them. He realizes that how he handles the job can mean life or death and the price for getting it wrong is paid in blood. It all comes together in the end, but like life, not how you expect.
