On the border between El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico, five lives are about to collide - with fatal results. You'll meet  

MARTY - the professional gambler who rolls the dice on a night with... 

MEG - the bored divorcee who seeks excitement and finds... 

LILY - the beautiful hitchhiker lured into a live sex show by...
