The most chilling frame of this thriller, from the director of The Crime of Father Amaro, may be the one that reads: “based on actual events.” In the border town of Juárez, Mexico, hundreds of women have gone missing or turned up as sun-burnt corpses in the desert, but new police Captain Blanca Bravo (Ana de la Reguera) is determined to stop the savagery. Jimmy Smits also stars.
