Writer-actor-producer Carlos Gallardo wrote and directed this fast-paced, ultra-low-budget ($11,000) action flick about a nameless Mexican intelligence agent (Gallardo) who arrives incognito in a small town, where his attacks on the resident tough guys upset local crime boss Camaro (Oscar Casteneda). Investigating Camaro's link to the assassination of a presidential candidate, the agent gets to know rival crime boss Manco (Miguel Gurza). In truth, Manco is the dead candidate's brother and is secretly conducting his own investigation. Shown at the 1998 Festival Cine Latino.
