Thrown into the fire.
Miguel is a young Mexican, aimless and drug-addicted.
When his sister Rosa is seized by a corrupt businessman, instead of fighting for her return, Miguel fights to preserve his own life and flees.
Hunted, he runs the gauntlet from Tijuana to the falsity of Hollywood, and then into the U.S. military to serve in Iraq.
Once again into the fire.
This time, Miguel comes out hardened by the flames.
Ready to do battle.
Fists clenched, ready to wage war for his familia.
