Many earnest films have been made recently about the struggles of Latin American migrants trying to cross into the U.S. for a better tomorrow; CRUZANDO isn't one of them. A madcap adventure following the journey of two Mexican no-hopers, CRUZANDO chronicles the real-life hazards of such a trip. About a week before the birth of his first child, Manuel learns that his long-lost father is about to be executed in Texas. Against his wife’s wishes he heads north, abandoning his job cleaning peep-show booths at a strip club while being tracked by the club's brutal bouncer. Manuel's video cam-toting pal Diego tags along, planning a documentary of the trek. Mistaken identities, family traumas and dehydration complicate Manuel's quest. But he finally learns a familiar lesson: there's no place like home (even if home is not all that great).
