In breathtaking words, Germán López Rosales from Mexico talks about his experience during a human-smuggling operation from border town Laredo, Texas, to San Antonio. Locked up inside a tractor-trailer, eight out of 39 immigrants died that day next to Germán because of extreme heat and lack of water. Two others died later in the hospital. Distant wide-angle shots of Texan suburbs and highways and the film’s slow editing rhythm contributes to put Germán’s testimony at the very centre of the film.
