Ismael Cruz Córdova Scenes in Miss Bala

Gloria Fuentes, who is a Latin-American makeup artist from Los Angeles, visits her best friend Suzu in Tijuana, Mexico. When the pair goes to a night club, they spot the Chief of Police, who Suzu wants to impress to help her chances in a beauty competition she has entered. When Gloria goes to the bathroom, armed gunmen break into the bathroom through the vents. They pull Gloria out of her stall but ultimately give her time to escape while they gun down the place. When she can’t get a hold of Suzu the next morning, she rides with a police officer to try to find her. When the officer stops the car, Gloria is taken by members of the Las Estrellas gang, the same men who shot up the club.

They take her to their headquarters, where Lino, the boss, agrees to help her find her friend if she agrees to work for them. She reluctantly agrees and is told to get into a car and park it on a corner. She does, and when she leaves the car and joins the men at the top of the hill, they blow up the building, revealed to be a DEA Safehouse containing three agents. Lino then sends Gloria to the Miss Baja California pageant, where she attempts an escape through the bathroom. She sees a white man and asks if he’s American, but he turns out to be a DEA agent and threatens her with years in prison if she doesn’t help the DEA get to Las Estrellas. She begs to be let go, but they make her use a tracking chip in her phone and send her back.

She goes back to Las Estrellas and is sent to San Diego with money and drugs attached to her car. Upon crossing the border she is given guns to bring back to Mexico and then told to meet in a large parking lot. She gets to the lot, and the men in Las Estrellas get their weapons. However the police show up with the DEA, and Lino runs to get Gloria but is shot in the leg, and Gloria helps him to safety.

They head to another safe house, where Gloria meets Isabella. Isabella was threatened into joining Las Estrellas, and bears an e* tattoo, meaning she belongs to them. When Gloria hears that they will be checking phones, she transfers the chip the DEA gave her to another phone. Unknowingly, she puts it in Isabella’s phone, who is killed by Lino for being a suspected mole. Gloria is extremely upset, and the next morning yells at Lino. He wants to kill the chief of police, so he sends Gloria to pageant and bribes the judges so that she will win since it’s rumored the chief of police sleeps with every winner. She goes to the after party, where she agrees to meet the Chief in another bedroom. She soon finds Suzu and tells her everything will be okay. However, when Suzu shows her the e* tattoo, Gloria quickly realizes that Lino deceived her and that he had known where she was the whole time.

In the room with the Chief, she writes on a postcard that Lino is going to kill him. He quickly escapes outside, and Gloria goes to find Suzu. Gloria shoots the chief of police in the leg after he tries to hold Suzu hostage, but then Lino kills him. Gloria points her gun at Lino, confessing she knows that he was aware of Suzu’s whereabouts. He tries to bargain with her, but she shoots him first, killing him. The two women are arrested, and when Gloria is taken into an interrogation room, she finds Jimmy, the man she had received the weapons from in San Diego, and realizes he is a CIA agent who was infiltrating the gang.

Gloria returns Suzu to her family and goes back into the car with Jimmy, driving off to help the CIA.
