Mike Cook, Mace Stanley and Frank Sayre recount their harrowing experience attempting to smuggle 2200 lbs of marijuana into the United Sates from Mazatlan in 1972. Mike, Mace and their friend Paul were California surfers soaking up the sun south of the border. When their boat needs more work than they can afford, they need a way home. They think they’ve found the perfect answer in Frank and his brother Dan. But they are in for a surprise when they are arrested and sent to a dangerous Mexican prison. In the grueling months awaiting a trial, they work on a desperate plan to escape.
