On DVD & Digital September 27

Winner of the Audience Award for Narrative Feature at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival, director Greg Kwedar’s critically-acclaimed thriller "TRANSPECOS" debuts on DVD and digital September 27 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Samuel Goldwyn Films.

Johnny Simmons (21 Jump Street), Gabriel Luna (“Wicked City”) and Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek) play three Border Patrol agents working a remote desert checkpoint.

When they uncover an insidious plot within their own ranks, they are taken on a treacherous journey that could cost them their lives.

In addition to the award at SXSW, "TRANSPECOS" won the Audience Award for Narrative Feature at the 2016 Dallas International Film Festival; the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature at the 2016 Independent Film Festival of Boston and; the Grand Jury Prize, the Audience Award and Best Actor (Gabriel Luna) at the 2016 Nashville Film Festival.

Depicting corruption as unavoidable as the desert heat, "TRANSPECOS" is a tense thriller that puts the audience in the shoes of three border patrol agents who man a check point on a remote highway.

Rookie Davis (Johnny Simmons) and seasoned Flores (Gabriel Luna) work with the callous, world-weary Hobbs (Clifton Collins Jr) to round out the trio.

On what feels like another routine stop, the contents of one car will throw their lives out of control.

As dark secrets are revealed, each passing hour will bring them closer to a nightmarish conclusion that could cost them their lives, in a world where the line between right and wrong shifts like the desert itself.

Directed by first time feature film Director Greg Kwedar, "TRANSPECOS" was co-written by Kwedar and Clint Bentley.

The film was produced by Molly Christie Benson,  Clint Bentley, Greg Kwedar and Nancy Schafer; with Josh Braun, Kristel Carter, Rick Carter, Jon Halbert, Linda Halbert, Larry Kalas, Mike Kwedar, Phyllis Kwedar, Cheryl Penn and Walt Penn serving as executive producers and Jennifer Kuczaj as co-executive producer.

"TRANSPECOS" has a run time of approximately 86 minutes and is not rated.
