"The First World and the Third World are the bread in this sandwich and we are the baloney!" So a character describes the sprawling industrial war zone on the U.S.-Mexico border that is Ciudad Juarez, the epicenter of the drug trade, where the Third World comes to make what the First World wants. Hundreds of innocent young women have been abducted, raped, and murdered here, yet the mystery of "las desaparecidas" remains tragically unsolved. Into this smoldering devil's stew steps an eccentric English journalist, the sometime employee of an occult magazine in London that attempts "the rational examination of all irrational phenomena," on his way from Miami to Los Angeles by bus. One morning at dawn he wades absent-mindedly across the shallow trickle of the Rio Grande into Juarez while filming an enormous white Siberian tiger. He gets caught up in the madness of a very strange family and is lucky to escape with his life.
