Plots

A pregnant Colombian teenager becomes a drug mule to make some desperately needed money for her family. - Anonymous

María Álvarez, an independent, feisty, and underpaid seventeen-year-old Colombian rose packager is stuck in a tedious life and a dead-end relationship with her good-for-nothing boyfriend, Juan. And as if things weren't bad enough, an unexpected pregnancy and an ugly altercation with her unfair boss will tempt María to accept the risky offer to become a drug mule, smuggling drugs from Bogotá to New York City. But, as things rapidly spiral out of control, suddenly, the option of an early retirement and a peaceful future for both María and her unborn baby begins to fade away. Is there a way out from this hopeless predicament? - Nick Riganas

In a small village in Colombia, the pregnant seventeen-year-old Maria supports her family with her salary working in floriculture. She is fired, and with a total lack of prospects of finding a new job, she decides to accept the offer to work as a drug mule, flying to the USA with sixty-two pellets of cocaine in her stomach. Once in New York, things do not happen as planned. - Stephen Bowen
