There have been over 200 shootings along the Mexican – U.S. border in the last 10 years. Border security has always been a divisive issue. The question may well be “just who needs protecting from who?”

Acclaimed director Charlie Minn (49 Pulses, Long Island Railroad Massacre) closely examines three separate killings along the USA-Mexico border.

Three Mexican nationals, all teenagers, all have had their lives taken by US border agents. Was it murder? Was it self-defense?

Minn visits the border in Tijuana, Nogales, and Juarez to shed light on a larger picture of historic violence between Mexican nationals and US border officers, an issue that may partially motivate why U.S. President Trump wants to build a wall there.
