Film Synopsis:

Los Traficantes retells the incredible true story of Esteban Mendoza Cruz, former Mexican drug lord, who in 1999 experienced a major transformation after finding redemption through faith in Christ while serving a 33-year sentence in La Mesa prison in Tijuana. The prison, one of Mexico’s most corrupt, was called “El Pueblito” by locals that frequently entered to buy drugs, hire prostitutes, or carry out other illegal activities.

The most unlikely convert in the most unlikely of places, Esteban was discipled by missionaries visiting the prison. After a short time he began pastoring a Church that grew rapidly to nearly 600 inmates. From the beginning, his Church was marked by loving the most hardened criminals and serving those in desperate need including feeding children, teaching them, and protecting them from the dangers of “Las Carpas”, where children in the prison were regularly abused by older male inmates.

This movie gives audiences the chance to see how one man’s story can inspire real hope for change. For almost a decade, horrific stories of violence and crime committed by Mexican drug cartels have dominated International news. Millions have been affected by drug abuse and violence associated with the drug trade in Mexico.

The world watches without hope as powerful drug cartels progressively gain control over every aspect of Mexican society causing their people to live in constant fear and intimidation. This movie brings hope in the reality that forgiveness through Christ can redeem even drug traffickers and transform individuals, families, and entire cities.

    With many of my friends in Rosarito Mexico, doing the very thing that this movie highlights, I was excited to see the work God is doing in this tumultuous area which is only 2 hours drive from my home in Orange County.

    ESTA HISTORIA ES ORIGINAL DE DIOS YA QUE EN SU SOBERANIA Y SU PLAN DIVINO PERMITE QUE PASEN MALAS Y BUENAS CIRCUNSTANCIAS PARA LOGRAR SU FIN. NADA ES CASUALIDAD COMO EL PRODUCTOR, DIRECTOR , TECNICOS , ACTORES , EL PERSONAL DE EDICION , LIMPIADORES, CARGADORES DE EQUIPO TECNICO Y TODOS LOS INVOLUCRADOS, HAN SIDO ESCOGIDOS POR DIOS PARA ESTE LOGRO Y EXITO. LA VIDA DE TODOS CAMBIARA PARA BIEN POR HABER ESTADO EN ESTE PROYECTO DE DIOS. VA SER DIFERENTE SU VIDA PARA BIEN , POR QUE DIOS ES AGRADECIDO CON LOS QUE TRABAJAN PARA EL. NO PODREMOS CAMBIAR EL MUNDO , PERO SI CAMBIAR EL MUNDO DE UNA PERSONA. BENDICIONES Y GRACIAS AL PRODUCTOR Y DIRECTOR DE LA PELICULA, Y PORSUPUESTOS TAMBIEN A TODOS LOS QUE COLABORARON EN LA PELICULA.

    A Dios Gracias, conocí al Pastor esteban unos años después de salir de prisión(3,4 años), asistí dentro del Instituto Bíblico y viví como la Palabra de Dios produjo estos cambios que solo El (Dios) con su poder podemos lograr. Deseo de todo corazón que sea de bendición para todas aquellas personas que han estado ligados al trafico de cosas no bien vistas por Dios.

    BENDICIONES.
