In the new suspense-thriller Desierto, a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante (played by Watchmen and Walking Dead actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan) chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border.

Desierto is cowritten and directed by Jonás Cuarón. The film’s producers include his father, Alfonso, whose movie Gravity, Jonás also co-wrote. Desierto costars Gael García Bernal and Alondra Hidalgo.
