In the aftermath of a global economic collapse, the secession of Texas spawns new rivalries, new allegiances and a new social order.
Crippled by sanctions, the United States faces an unprecedented energy crisis while the resource-rich Republic of Texas emerges as an economic haven and superpower. This isn't the complete destruction of civilization. It's a changing of the guards. The birth a new power dynamic that ushers the first world into the third.
Trapped in the fringe of this soft apocalypse, Estrella and Sam struggle to rebuild a life imploded. As the old saying goes, they didn't cross the border. The border crossed them. Now, desperate to meet the basic needs of survival, they hire a criminal (Victor) to smuggle fuel across the border. But they soon discover the real criminals are not the men breaching that border, but the ones guarding it.
