The Wall of Mexico tells the story of Don (Jackson Rathbone), a handyman hired by the Aristas, a wealthy Mexican-American family with two outrageously decadent daughters. He soon learns tensions are high between the Aristas and the poor white townspeople, and that this has something to do with the Aristas’ well, which Don is asked to guard at night. Don learns the Aristas are selling wellwater at alarming prices. As the water level drops, possibly from theft, the Aristas decide to build a massive wall.
