Emotionally distraught from losing custody of her son Georgie and running out of options to earn a living to win him back, single mother Ashley becomes desperate when she loses her job at a local Austin megastore. So when the risky opportunity arises to become a coyote-smuggling illegal immigrants over the Texas border-she takes it. The harrowing experience results in unforeseen rewards and consequences, as Ashley forges an intense bond with a young Mexican girl who forces her to confront her past, accept the mistakes she's made, and look to the future.
