In another time, border patrol matron Sandy Hamilton, and illegal immigrant Maria Fuentes, were strangers thrown together through tragedy. Now fifteen years later, they find themselves facing the same nightmare: the infamous Fernando Morales. Sandy, now a border patrol agent, searches for the vicious and elusive smuggler. All are unaware Fernando is still pursuing his vengeful mission to destroy Maria's husband, the once undercover agent Henry Ramirez. This time Fernando is using precious bait: Maria and Henry's child. Fernando will stop at nothing, including the desecration of what they hold sacred -- their family -- and he's determined to consummate his revenge in one form or another. Sandy, with the help of retired agent Joe Blackwell, the man she once loved, and Maria and Henry, finally discovers Fernando hiding in Tijuana's dark alleys. Will a mother's personal sacrifice bring justice and an end to their terror and grief?
