Summary, etc.:
Tony Sandoval was born and raised in northwestern Mexico, where the temptation to cross the border in the US ultimately becomes a matter of the heart. Drawn by the need to reunited with his American girlfriend and faced with an insurmountable visa process standing in the way of their relationship, he makes the ultimate romantic gesture: smuggling himself across the border, despite the dangers he'll face from the blistering heat, vicious bandits, barbed wire, and - most daunting of all - the US border patrol. An autobiographical account by the three-time Eisner-nominated writer/artist, this true story shines reliable light on the hot-topic immigration issue in the news today.
