Review by jim (posted on 29-Oct-2009)

This obsure movie released on HBO in early 1984, was an excellent story, great directing, and a perfect cast. A look at the life of the U.S. Border Patrol, patroling along the Texas border, when an unexpected find by border patrolman Bobby, (Kris C.) creates a Federal Government frenzy coming out of Washington D.C. Fed. agent portrayed by Kurtwood Smith. Which was one of the most sinister realistic depiction of a CIA agent type ever. Rip Torn portrays a Co. Sheriff, Treat Williams friend and fellow BP agent. Conspiracy buffs will love this film. This film must of been buried for a reason. Many twists and turns to keep you interested, and wanting more.
