The Gatekeeper

This low-budget labor of love comes from writer-director-producer-actor John Carlos Frey. Frey stars as Adam, a confused, self-loathing Border Patrol agent in San Diego who moonlights with a right-wing white supremacist group. Our protagonist volunteers to go undercover to expose an immigrant-smuggling operation. Naturally, things go wrong, and Adam finds himself stuck with a group of migrant workers being held prisoner at the desert ranch of a U.S. drug kingpin. In time, he learns to see things from the other side of the fence (so to speak). Occasionally melodramatic but never preachy, this slick indie flick doesn't try to push any complex social agenda. It simply puts a face on what has become more of and "issue" and less of a story about real human beings. 108 minutes
