A German expressionism/film-noir hybrid from former special efffects photographer Les Bernstein (Contact (1997) and Fight Club (1999)), this visually driven film follows portly ex-con Joe Butcher (John Voldstad) as embarks on a wild and surreal journey south of the border while trying to solve the mystery of his brother's death. Entangled in a menacing web of corruption surrounding Tijuana's snuff film industry shortly after his arrival in Mexico, Butcher's alcohol enduced stupor finds him encountering a Mexican spitfire and a series of increasingly bizarre, and often threatening characters.
