a place between breaths
What would you risk?
What would you sacrifice?
When FBI Agent Rachel Mueller flies to
Mexico’s Copper Canyon to recover the body
of a missing American college student, she's
partnered with Mexican federal agent Marius
Suarez, a man she knew and loved years ago
when he used an alias and worked
undercover for the DEA. Working together
while trying to sort out their troubled past,
Rachel and Marius discover evidence of more
murders – all committed by a man who sees
himself as the reincarnate Tezcatlipoca, Aztec
god of deception. As their investigation
becomes complicated by corruption on both
sides of the border, their renewed trust for
each other is strained. Racing against a
timetable that matches the Aztec calendar,
their investigation leads them back through
the myth of the gods, the crumbling streets of
Juarez and into the deepest corners of the
Copper Canyon. When the killer kidnaps his
next victim, Rachel and Marius are forced to
make their own choice: protect their growing
love for each other, or sacrifice everything for
the greatest love of all.
