The headless bodies of eight Hispanic men have been discovered in the desert near Esperanza, Arizona, fanning racial tensions in the already divided community. The story is a ratings hit for the local news stations, spurring an independent producer to propose a "reality" series based on the grizzly story. The show pits two rival new crews against each other to find answers about the murders. They discover that truth is not only stranger than fiction, it's more dangerous. Something wants to keep them them from digging deeper, and rapidly the teams lose their resources, their bearings, and their lives.
