Synopsis: A select team of US Army Special Forces Soldiers are sent on a mission to retrieve pieces of a downed spy satellite from a remote desert region 45 miles west of Janos, Mexico. Expecting a routine, even boring mission, the team is soon faced with the loss of half their members, along with their Mexican Federal Police escort, and are forced to beat a hasty retreat to a cantina they passed on the way in. They spend a long night trying to understand what they are up against and how to defeat this apparently undefeatable (and otherworldly) foe.

Director's Statement

This film was a passion project for me. I wrote this script years ago but it was too complicated, just too many moving parts. Still I really liked the story and after several revisions and inputs from many, we went to work to make the film. Shooting was fun (OK I broke my hip and that was not great but the rest was). Editing was hard. The original version was 2 hours long. I cut it to 1:45 but getting out the last 15 minutes was very painful, the story is better at 90 minutes, but it was still painful to kill some of my favorite scenes. What I love about this story is that the most unexpected character becomes the hero. Never underestimate the girl!
