Desierto (2015)

The border between the United States and Mexico is approximately 1,700 miles in length, stretching from the mouth of the Rio Grande at Brownsville, Texas, all the way to the Pacific shoreline at Imperial Beach, California.

V1 Movie Review

Paradigm Pictures with Kalorful Beta Movement produce this film that is written and directed by Pavel Navageethan.
