The community of Bisbee, a mining town on the Arizona-Mexico border not far away from legendary Tombstone, commemorates the deportation of 1200 immigrant workers forced on cattle cars and left to die in the desert. With the help of the residents of the small city, Greene recreates the conflict and union unrest that originated the tragedy. A dark page of American history comes once again back to life.
