The heat suffocation of six campesinos in the California desert was tragic enough before reporter Ray Myers discovers another kind of human cargo—babies. Infants had crossed the border with the dead immigrants, babies now missing. The trail to find them hurls the reporter into the dangerous world of international human trafficking.
The smuggling gang becomes crippled in chaos as mastermind Ricky Mendez devises a psychotic plan to snuff everyone related to the smuggling operation, including now a pesky reporter who keeps sniffing in the wrong places.
Myers, along with softhearted smuggler Maggie Frazier, find themselves on the run from Mendez’ henchmen while trying to rescue the babies from a ruthless Mexican trafficker who has hijacked the children. It’s a race against time that drives them deep into Baja’s Indian country and through the seamy back streets of Ensenada.
