Dead in Their Tracks: Crossing America's Desert Borderlands

Synopsis

In one of the hottest, loneliest spots on earth, John Annerino hooked up with four Mexican nationals determined to cross the border illegally. Their choice was simple: risk their lives crossing the desert for a poorly paid job in El Norte or stay in Mexico and watch their families starve. Annerino and his companions would have died in that vast, unforgiving land had they not shared the water they had and helped one another with the encouragement that seemed pointless at the time. Dead in Their Tracks is the true story of a desperate human struggle in a bleak, beautiful wilderness.
