Documentary filmmaker Charlie Minn offers this unflinching look at life in Juarez, Mexico, an impoverished city that has recently earned the dubious title of Murder Capitol of the World. In addition to exploring local politics through a profile of the mayor, Minn also focuses on the arrival of a dubious new police chief, delves into the escalating violence brought on by drug trafficking, and even looks ahead to the upcoming presidential elections.
