From Jonás Cuarón and Alfonso Cuarón, the acclaimed filmmakers of "Gravity," comes a unique, modern vision of terror. "Desierto" is a visceral, heart-pounding suspense-thriller packed with tension and suspense from start to finish, starring Gael García Bernal ("The Motorcycle Diaries" and "Y Tu Mamá También") and Jeffrey Dean Morgan ("Watchmen"). What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there’s nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer.
