Star (USA) - - Star Entertainm­ent -

TALK about be­ing caught in the mid­dle. Af­ter los­ing her par­ents, Glo­ria (Ro­driguez) heads to Ti­juana for some much-needed QT with her best friend (Cristina Rodlo). But a girls’ night out takes a dras­tic turn when they find them­selves in the mid­dle of a shootout — and Glo­ria is ab­ducted by a drug car­tel and forced to as­sist their ring­leader (Cór­dova)! How­ever, she some­how man­ages a secret re­la­tion­ship with the DEA and soon finds her­self the com­mon de­nom­i­na­tor be­tween the good guys and the bad guys. Not only does this thriller show how ver­sa­tile the Jane the Vir­gin star can be, it also proves you shouldn’t mess with a strong, in­de­pen­dent woman! “Women aren’t nec­es­sar­ily al­ways por­trayed as proac­tively try­ing to save our­selves in ac­tion films,” the ac­tress says. “It’s very em­pow­er­ing to see those sto­ries.”
