Set in the Sonoran Desert, just south of Tucson, Arizona, Sun Belt Express follows Allen King (Donovan), a down-on-his-luck professor who agrees to earn some extra cash by smuggling undocumented immigrants across the border. When his curious teenage daughter Emily (Ennenga) sneaks into the trunk of his car to discover what he’s been up to, Allen finds himself on an unhinged run across the Mexican border with his daughter in tow, a former girlfriend (de la Reguera) and three undocumented immigrants in the trunk. What follows is a family road trip full of surprises and revelations that will change their lives forever.
