Synopsis:


In Gravity, Sandra Bullock was forced to survive in outer space. In Desierto, Gael García Bernal has to escape the Sonora desert, where a vigilante who has set out to defend the United States from Mexican immigrants trying to cross the border decides to pursue him, rifle in hand, and with an unrestrained rabid dog. Jonás Cuarón turns this dusty thriller into a horror film.
