When his Grandfather suddenly becomes ill, Javi, a South Texas farmhand resorts to the extreme: he turns to a Mexican cartel to make some quick cash.
But when the cartel breaks his arm and forces him to smuggle a cast made of cocaine across the Mexican border, Javi learns how far he will go for family.
"With echoes of the brilliant shot-in-Calgary series FARGO, TEJANO is a gorgeously shot, relentlessly-paced, and very timely thriller about what desperate people will do in times of extreme pressure.
At times shocking, violent, and unrelenting - but with a pitch-black sense of humor lurking beneath the surface, this 2018 Dallas International Film Festival Audience Award winner marks the debut of an exciting new film-making voice."
