Needing to keep his honor-bound commitment, Texas ranch foreman Pete returns the body of illegal Mexican immigrant ranch-hand Melquiades Estrada to his preferred resting place in the Mexican wilderness. Estrada had been accidentally shot by Mike, a newly-arrived U.S. border patrolman. Pete forces Mike to participate in his cross-country ritual of duty - a voyage filled with revenge and redemption that will change both men forever - and bring some semblance of meaning to the senseless death of Pete's good friend.

The beginning of this had the inklings of a flop, but about halfway through, its energy was rejuvenated when Barry Pepper's contemptible character was dealt the vindicating wrath of Tommy Lee Jones...

If you like Westerns, you'll like this. If you like Tommy Lee Jones, you'll like this. A good story, a good watch.

Melquiades Estrada: "Promise me one thing, Pete. If I die over here, carry me back to my family and bury me in my hometown. I don't want to be buried on this side among all the f**king billboards."
