Co-written by Mauricio Katz and Gerardo Naranjo, who also directed it, "Miss Bala" (Miss Bullet in English translation) gives a gritty, visual portrayal of living life amidst the brutal Mexican drug cartels along our southern borders. The script is loosely based on the real life events of Mexican beauty and model, Laura Zuniga. Gail Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna who both acted in the film, "Y Tu Mamá También," are Executive Producers. It was also selected as Mexico's official entry for the 2012 Oscar competition for Foreign Film.
