Miss Bala (2012 movie)

A

After getting caught in a Mexican nightclub shoot-out, a naive aspiring Miss Baja beauty queen (Stephanie Sigman) finds her fate hitched to that of a drug lord. And each step she, her captors, the local cops, and federal agents take only ups the danger and hopelessness of her situation.
