David Morse (The Chair), Bill Heck (Locke & Key) and Jaklyn Bejarano are starring in Santa Rita Film Co.’s La Gloria, which is currently filming in South Texas. 

The drama explores the humanity and political abstractions surrounding the US-Mexico border. In addition to being filmed in South Texas, the film takes place there. It tells the story of Carson Tidwell (Morse), an embittered and isolated rancher who mistakenly shoots a young, pregnant migrant girl named Irena (Bejarano) who is crossing his property.

Confronted with his actions and threatened with a criminal investigation, Carson must decide whether to help Irena recuperate on his ranch or face criminal charges led by his son (Heck), an agent for the US Border Patrol.

La Gloria will be the directorial debut of Joseph Todd Walker, from a written with Christopher Young and based on Walker’s story.

It is being produced and financed under the Santa Rita Film Co. banner led by producers Houston Hill and Ty Roberts. Sharri Hefner and George Sledge are also producing, with Greg McCabe, Allen Gilmer and Matt Harvey exec producing for Santa Rita.
