Annotation El periodista Ramos informe sobre la trágica muerte de ilegales que en 2003 intentaron viajar en camión a Houston, Texas. Describe cómo los traficantes de ilegales dejaron morir de asfixia y calor insoportable a diecinueve de los sesenta y tres personas que se escondían en la parte atrás del camión. A través de entrevistas con sobrevientes y análisis del juicio, Ramos relata porque se murieron tantas personas, incluso un niño, que solo buscaban una vida mejor.
