Summary
In Al Otro Lado the fantasy of the "American dream" and the economic crisis that drives thousands across the border looking for work has landed Magdiel at an impossible crossroads in his life. A fourth-generation fisherman with aspirations for a home of his own, a car and an education for his younger sister, he must pick a road if he is to realize his goals--to become a drug trafficker like many of his friends, or to cross the border illegally to the United States. Magdiel lives in Sinaloa, the drug capital of Mexico, where he can no longer subsist on the shrimp that have been depleted by global demands and poor fishing practices. He is also a self-taught composer. Reflecting the life around him, Magdiel sings of fishermen who have turned their pangas (fishing boats) into drug-running boats and made the treacherous journey to deliver the merchandise to the "gringos."
