Movie Info

An American wrestler who left behind his homeland to become a Lucha Libre superstar ends up hopelessly indebted to the Mexican mafia in director Lee Demarbre's south of the border thriller. Twenty years ago, an ambitious young gringo transformed himself into The Champ. The biggest star in all of Mexican wrestling, The Champ was sitting on top of the world until he accidentally broke the neck of an opponent in a high profile match. As fate would have it, the wrestler who took the brunt of The Champ's beating that night just so happened to be the nephew of the local mob boss. In the aftermath of that unfortunate accident, The Champ spent nearly two decades attempting to compensate for his transgression. Whether it be assassinations, collections, or participating in a few rounds of illegal bare-knuckle fights, The Champ always made good on his promise to pay his penance. These days it seems like there's nothing that The Champ hasn't seen or done, but what happens on his latest assignment will forever change the fate of this tragic figure. When The Champ is assigned the task of escorting a group of illegal immigrants over the border, he follows the plan just as it was laid out. Moments after handing the border jumpers over to the Minutemen, who are working in collaboration with the Mexican mafia, gunshots pierce the nighttime silence and The Champ knows precisely what has happened. Now, in order to redeem himself and seek justice for the innocent lives that were taken that moonlit night on the Mexican border, The Champ will set out to confront the very forces that he has served without question for two long decades. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
