Tate Donovan does a great job of creating the anti-hero. India Ennenga is wonderful as his idealistic daughter with head held high ethics and expectations of the world. Oscar Avilla and Arturo Castro standout as Laurel and Hardies of the script. They also give the human face to the illegal migrants of Mexico.
The use of coincidence is a bit too much to make the viewer buy into the stories reality, but overall I found it good entertainment.
