Highway Patrolman (El Patrullero):
Graduating as a top police student from the National Highway Patrol Police Academy, Pedro Rojas (veteran Mexican actor Roberto Sosa) and his college friend Anibal (Bruno Bichir) are sent to patrol a desolate highway. The pair start off by strictly enforcing the law during their arduous 24 hour shifts but soon their dedication begins to dwindle. Pedro's wife Griselda (Zaide Silvia Gutierrez) complains about his lowly wage and pressurises him into accepting bribes and a steady descent begins that ends with Pedro in the arms of junkie hooker Maribel (Vanessa Bauche). However, when Anibal is murdered by barbarous drug traffickers, Pedro's thirst for revenge may also perhaps offer a shot at redemption.
American art dealer Bennie (Miguel Sandoval) arrives at his Liverpool hotel. Staying at the same establishment is British art dealer Frank King (played by Alex Cox). After meeting in the hotel's abandoned restaurant, the pair set off into the rainy night in search of a decent meal. Attempting to suppress their hunger through conversation as they travel about via subway, bus, ferry and taxi, the pair eventually come across not sustenance, but another lost and hungry businessman, Leroy Jasper (Robert Wisdom).
