A naive man transporting lethal narcotics in his stomach is detained by the police. Alone and afraid, the "mule" makes a desperate choice-to defy his bodily functions and withhold the evidence. Literally. By doing so becomes a "human time-bomb," dragging cops, criminals. Lawyers and his mother into his impossible escapade. Inspired by true events, THE MULE is a comic nightmare of stomach-churning suspense abd belly laughs.
