Synopsis

BOLERO tells the story of 15 year old JACO, who falsely accused of a heinous crime, leaves his Mexican hometown of FLORES and everything he’s ever loved behind for a life of exile in the U.S. - only to come back 20 years later and, against all odds, attempt to clear his name and get his old life back.

But going back home never looked this hard, for everything and everyone JACO left behind has changed.

Formerly a sleepy border town sitting on the fringe of the Mexican desert, the (fictional) town of FLORES has become the home base to the leaders of the infamous SINALOA CARTEL and their SICARIO-GROUP, known as MATA ZETAS, becoming the strategic point of entry to most of the illegal weapons crossing the border from the U.S.

As result, FLORES now sits at the epicenter of the “FAST AND FURIOUS” related murder investigation of BORDER PATROL AGENT, DAVID KEENE who - killed by a weapon registered in the “GUNWALKING” program - places PENECA, JACO’S childhood friend turned infamous MATA ZETAS SICARIO, at the crosshairs of a Federal investigation.

But this isn’t a simple murder investigation; it’s a perfect storm - a storm that started brewing twenty years ago the moment a young JACO had to leave town for the crime PENECA himself had committed and blamed him for – only JACO isn’t facing PENECA solely as the dangerous SICARIO he’s become; but as the man who took over his life when he left and made everybody in FLORES believe that he (JACO) was a heartless, blood-thirsty, murderer.

A CONFLICTED JACO knows he’ll have to fight every step of the way to get what he wants; and that PENECA, who has everything to lose, won’t let go without a fight - playing SON to JACO’S MOTHER, BROTHER to JACO’S SISTER and LOVER to JACO’S GIRL, is all PENECA’S known since JACO left town; their lives, growing inextricably intertwined against the bloody landscape that is the new FLORES.

So JACO charges on and heads straight into the eye of the storm; but not without a plan - a plan that, twenty years in the making, includes the use of the “FAST AND FURIOUS” investigation, a false DEA AGENT’S IDENTITY and DAVID KEENE’S MURDER as cover in an UNEXPECTED SET-UP that, once set in motion, will change everyone’s lives forever.
