Summary

Alfredo Corchado, un periodista, es alertado del plan para asesinarlo que trama un poderoso capo de la droga...

Alfredo Corchado narra en Medianoche en México su experiencia como periodista amenazado por el narcotráfico.

Es medianoche en México, 2007. Alfredo Corchado recibe una llamada telefónica de su fuente principal para informarle que hay un plan para asesinarlo por parte de un poderoso capo. Pronto averigua que lo quieren matar porque uno de sus artículos en el Dallas Morning News afectó los sobornos que los narcotraficantes entregan a policías, militares y funcionarios del gobierno mexicano.

Así comienza el viaje en espiral de un hombre que busca descifrar la compleja situación del país mientras lucha por salvar su vida. A pesar de recorrer un camino de múltiples encrucijadas, desigualdad y violencia extrema, Corchado, "infectado con la enfermedad incurable del periodismo", no se resigna a abandonar la esperanza en tiempos turbulentos. Ahora, el líder del brutal cártel que lo perseguía, el Z-40, está detenido, pero la historia no ha terminado de escribirse.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Alfredo Corchado, a journalist, is alerted to a powerful drug lord’s plan to assassinate him…
 
In Midnight in Mexico, Alfredo Corchado tells of his experience as a journalist threatened by the drug trade.
 
It is midnight in Mexico, 2007. Alfredo Corchado receives a phone call from his main source to inform him that a powerful drug lord is hatching a plan to assassinate him. He soon finds out that they want to kill him because one of his articles in the Dallas Morning News affected the bribes that the drug lords pay to the Mexican police, military, and government officials.
 
Thus begins the spiraling journey of a man attempting to decipher his country’s complex predicament while fighting to save his own life. Despite traveling a path frought with multiple crossroads, disparities, and extreme violence, Corchado, “infected with the incurable disease of journalism,” does not abandon hope in turbulent times. Now, the the leader of the Z-40, the brutal cartel that pursued him, is in prison, but the story isn’t finished yet…
