Episode 1: Miles from Nowhere

La Frontera Episode 1

Pati travels from El Paso and Ciudad Juarez to Big Bend National Park. She discovers the people, places, and food that make it unique. Old and new friends help Pati discover the best places to eat and what makes the culture and economy of the region distinct. She learns how closely America and Mexico are connected through the cattle industry and visits the site where thousands of cattle cross the border every day.  She cruises through downtown El Paso with low-riders, talks to muralists, and watches an all female Mariachi band play their long-awaited comeback concert. She learns how these two cities, which are almost like an island in the desert, rely on each other in order to thrive.
