The body of Mexican Melquiades Estrada is found in a shallow grave in the desert, where it was hastily buried after being fatally shot by a Border Patrolman, Mike Norton (Barry Pepper). Making no attempt to solve the crime, the local Texan authorities rapidly transfer the corpse to a pauper's grave in the cemetery. Pete Perkins (Tommy Lee Jones), a ranch foreman and Melquiades' best friend, takes it upon himself to hold Norton accountable. After forcing him to dig up the body at gunpoint, Pete heads across the remote Texan desert with his captive in tow and the body strapped to a mule. What follows is a dangerous and quixotic journey into Mexico, toward the third burial - and promised resting place - of Melquiades Estrada.
