Two young Mexican sisters live a terrible ordeal as illegal immigrants in the United States. After the rape and murder of her younger sister by a pair of BP agents, the other girl seeks justice and she is forced to take it in her own hands. Las Braceras was shot in Brownsville, Texas, in the summer of 1980. Shooting was finished by August 8, and cast and crew prepared to travel back to Mexico as a hurricane warning was in effect, and almost everybody hurried to leave. A few people chose to stay, including one of the stars, Maritza Olivares. When the first winds and rain from hurricane Allen began to hit the area, Maritza went into hysterics, but had to remain in Brownsville until the storm dissipated.
