After being deported from the U.S.A. for credit card fraud, Claudia (22) is forced to go to her estranged father’s cattle ranch in northern México. Struggling to adapt to family and a way of life she has never known, she partners with a dangerous smuggler who promises to get her back to America if she helps him trespass on her family’s ranch. Both a slow burning thriller and classic western, POCHA (MANIFEST DESTINY) follows the transformative journey of a young woman confronting the high price of American ideals in the dark places between two cultures.
