Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this Western-drama from Mexico, El Sureño (Raúl De Anda) is a well-respected officer in the revolutionary army who has been given one final assignment in anticipation of his retirement. Sureño is ordered to travel to Sonora and mediate a peace agreement between the warring Yaqui Indians and the local police and military officials. Thinking it would be best to travel incognito, he disguises himself as a cowhand and helps drive a herd of cattle to Sonora. En route, he learns more about the situation in Sonora, and discovers the Yaquis are a peaceful tribe, while the town's chief of police has been instigating the aggression between them. Bajo el Cielo de Sonora was directed by leading man Raúl De Anda, and also stars Leonora Amar and Carlos Lopez Moctezuma.
