J. D. Jessup wants to get away from life, so he heads to the desert near Tucson, Arizona where he hires on at an organic farm. The lifestyle is far from the one he is running from, where he was once a musician, playing guitar and writing music from his heart. Now, his greatest responsibility is to make sure that if he ever sees an illegal, he is to call Border Patrol.
One early morning ride changes his life forever. While checking fences he stumbles across a body, only to find that the "body" is a beautiful young woman, an "ILLEGAL" by the name of Maria, who is near death. Blocking from his mind his employer's requirement to call Border Patrol, J. D. hides Maria, caring for her wounds as best as he can. In search of better medical care, and also with the vague thought of persuading Maria to turn herself in, J. D. begins to look beyond himself and care for someone other than himself.
Unfortunately, trying to take care of Maria leads to a deadly trail of events. Death and destruction seem to follow Maria, and hence J. D. as well. Constantly on the run, J. D. and Maria seem to have different directions in mind. What follows is definitely not what you would expect. Throughout the journey, J. D. and Maria change, for the better.
