“State department has pulled in an agent specialises in responding the escalating cartel activity,” says a man, to which Kate replies: “This is not my department.”

Macy is then joined by Alejandro, a character played by Benicio del Toro and Matt played by Josh Brolin, to travel to a lawless border between the US and Mexico.
