Independent Film, Coyote, is a suspenseful and heart-wrenching story about two Americans, Steve (Brian Peterson, director and writer) and J. (Brett Spackman, writer) from Arizona, and the obstacles and dangers they face as owners of a ‘Kinder, Gentler People Smugglers’ coyote business.

After forming their company, they begin to find success and a nice profit, as they become known as coyotes, who care about about the safety of the immigrants they are transporting.   Later,  J. is arrested at the border and  their business is continued by crossing the Sonoran desert. While crossing the desert, J.’s runs into a coyote, who threatens him with harm for being on his territory. Soon, Steve’s and J.’s morals and values are put to the test as greed begins to cloud their judgments as they decide which is more important – money or life.

I would definitely recommend watching Coyote because it is a great story of the realities immigrants face each day while crossing the U.S. border. The acting is so superb, that when Steve and J. feared for their life, I also felt fear for them as well. What I really enjoy about this movie is that you watch the characters begin to change their moral and values for money. The movie also ends with a shocking end that the viewer does not expect.   3.5 of 5 stars
