Synopsis by Jennifer Lackman
This documentary provides an in-depth look at two vigilante groups and their mutual enemy, the Mexican drug cartels. The Arizona Border Recon is a paramilitary group that's attempting to stop drug trafficking in Alter Alley, a narrow patch of the desert also known as Cocaine Alley. The Autodefensas in Mexico are comprised of citizens battling the Knights Templar, a cartel that has created trouble in their region for years. Filmmaker Matthew Heineman travels with the groups as they seek justice.
