A thick fog surrounds California’s borders, with communication beyond state lines cut off, and the Mexican workers, spouses, and business owners are missing. Cars are abandoned in the street and food is left cooking on the stove. We meet the wife of a musician who’s disappeared, a state Senator whose maid doesn’t show up for work, and a farm owner whose produce is ripe and unpicked. A scientist asks any Mexicans who haven’t disappeared to volunteer for genetic experiments. A female newscaster and the daughter of the musician may be the only missing links around. Why them? The American society and economy grind to a halt.
