Synopsis

On May 20, 1997, the team leader of a U.S. counter-narcotics mission killed 18-year old Ezequiel Hernandez, Jr. nearby the border town of Redford, Texas, while Ezequiel was tending to his herd of goats. It was the first time since the Vietnam War that the National Guard had killed a U.S. citizen in his own country; none of the Marines was ever charged with a crime. Compelled by the current political situation on the Mexico-U.S. border, the Marines agreed to be interviewed for the first time.
