One night in El Paso on the Mexican border: Sara (Charlavail Effron) has killed her husband (Robert Rodriguez) not only to escape their abusive relationship but also to live the life she has imagined, and then used his mob connections to do away with the body - which was really the easy part because he was nothing but a little bagman who won't be missed by anyone. But now she owes David (David Jara), and to pay her debt she has to play driver for a nameless hitman (Joe Sinclitico) who has to trail down a shitload of money that has been stolen from David, and that his stranger is to relieve, killing everybody who has wronged David along the way. The stranger and Sara soon take a liking in one another, and even if him killing people rubs her the wrong way, she remains loyal and has his back when things get out of hand. But trailing the money gradually becomes a wild goose chase, as it seems to have changed hands quite that many times that everyone is confused about its whereabouts. Until Sara figures it might have been her own husband who has gotten his hands on the dough. But with him gone, who'll take the fall?

 

Now granted, the basic premise of Borderland is a bit slim and even on the predictable side of things, but the film makes the most of it, thanks to a poignant screenplay, well fleshed out lead characters, and a bunch of fittingly eccentric, at times even funny supporting figures. And add to that a dynamic direction and a very able cast, and you've got yourself a really nice trip through the seedier sides of gangsterland that, if you can forgive the occasional outbursts of violence, is sure to entertain.
