Five friends are on their way home after a wedding in Canada. They are about to cross the border with the USA when they’re stopped. The border police. The police officers are scrupulous, and suspicious. The questioning slowly intensifies, especially with Jalil. As good citizens, the group stays calm. After all they’ve done nothing wrong… But pot is found in the car and tension rises up. The police check, unpleasant so far, takes a revolting, nasty turn. The officers refuse to let the youngest take his medication, her sister, a lawyer, revolts herself. The group is cuffed, and she got a “deep” body search under her friend’s eyes. Then the dog’s suspected to be a mule… and the patroller rips its stomach with a knife ! Situation is getting out of control. Someone is shot. The group is arrested
and sent to a special jail in the heart of the forest. Cages are waiting for them. Along with intensive questioning. But who are these supposed officers ? And what do they want ?
