When Empathy Is Your Only Savior
Fiction , Drama, Action and Adventure, Mystery, Suspense, Thriller
When three immigrants, one being a late-term pregnant woman, illegally cross the border and encounter a pair of armed militia, it ends in both an abhorrent act of violence, and an empathetic display of mercy.
“Day Crosser” will highlight a poor migrant farming family from Mexico looking to escape the ruthless violence of the drug cartels. With a baby on the way, the couple hopes to start a new life in America – free from the fear and retribution by local crime lords.
A parallel story-line will focus on a recently discharged Afghanistan veteran suffering from Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and his journey for normalcy for his wife and young daughter. After he is rejected for a career as a border patrol guard, he’s then persuaded to join the local militia group headed by a retired LAPD police officer with a questionable past.
When these opposite worlds collide on a hot, desert mountainside overlooking the Mexican/Arizona border, tragedy ensues, followed by an empathetic display of humanity and mercy.
