Set in Mexico's border city of Baja, Miss Bala chronicles three terrifying days in the life of Laura, a beautiful young girl whose humble effort to escape a life of grim poverty goes diabolically wrong. When Laura's aspirations of becoming a beauty queen turn against her, she is delivered into the hands of a violent gang of drug smugglers. Although she succeeds in winning the beauty queen crown, her experiences as an unwilling participant in Mexico's violent war leave her shaken and transformed. Combining explosive thrills with mesmerising action sequences and vivid imagery, Miss Bala is a taut, tense descent into a terrifying world of corruption, danger and deceit that will leave you gasping for air.
