The War Boys follows three young Texan men who spend their nights patrolling the Mexican border wall to earn a $10 bounty for every Mexican they catch crossing it. To pass the time, they play the game “The War Boys”. But on this night things turn from fun to violent when the lines between fantasy and reality become dangerously blurred. The War Boys are forced to decide what it means to be an American and who has the right to belong.
