Joaquin (Manuel Ojeda) and his beautiful wife Susana (Blanca Guerra) are indeed In the Middle of Nowhere in this crime drama. The couple run a little gas station and store in a sparsely populated and desert-like region of Mexico. When a wounded man (Guillermo Garcia Cantu) arrives at the spot accompanied by his brother (Emilio Cortes) and wife (Gabriela Roel), they probably would have done what they could for them anyway. Instead, since the wounded man is a wanted fugitive, the trio take the couple hostage. This doesn't change much, except that the brother is way more interested in Susana than he would be if he were a decent man. Since the fugitive's wife is a lovely woman, Joaquin gets an eyeful of her while he can.
