Gloria, a make-up artist in Los Angeles who travels to her home in Tijuana, Mexico to help her childhood friend prepare for a beauty contest. Immediately she is thrown into a literal fight for her life and the life of her friend who was kidnapped. Pitted against a ruthless drug cartel, a corrupt police department and the DEA who uses her to track down the cartel, Gloria doesn’t know who she can trust. Soon she learns to trust no one but instead uses her cunning and strength to help both herself and her friend. The movie gives the viewer an inside look at what happens inside other countries faced with corruption and power struggles. Good drama!



Gina Rodriguez stars in Miss Bala as Gloria, a young woman who discovers a strength she never knew she had when her closest friend is kidnapped. As she’s drawn into the dangerous world of cross-border crime, Gloria begins a journey of empowerment that will test her under the most extreme circumstances and force her to undergo a stunning transformation into an extraordinary and relatable hero.
