In the film, Miss Bala, the main character is Laura Guerrero. She is living with her dad and brother in a Mexican city that does not have any law enforcement. Laura's dream is be a beauty queen. She decides to enter the pageant in Baja, California. She decides to go to a club with her pal, Suzu. It was at this time that a drug cartel decides to burst through the door and kill most of the people at the club. The murders find Laura in a corner but they decide to let her go.

Laura makes the mistake of going back to the club to look for her friend, Suzu. The murders do not like the fact that Laura came back, so they decide to kidnap Laura. They make her go along with all their criminal activities as they threaten her life as well as lives of her family members. You will have to watch the film to find out the rest! The movie came out at the theaters in January 2012. It was rated "R" for language, brutal violence and sexuality. You can tell by the cover (a woman in her bra and a guy holding money up for her), it's not a film for children.

The genres of the film are foreign and drama. The movie is a total of 1 hour and 53 minutes long. The distributor of the movie is Fox International Productions. It was produced in Mexico, and the director of the film is Gerardo Naranjo. The three executive producers are: Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna, and Geminiano Pineda. The actors and their respective parts are: Stephanie Sigman as Laura Guerrero, James Russo as Jimmy, Jose Yenque as Kike Camara, Lakshmi Picazo as Suzu, Irene Azuela as an actor in the film.

The film is loosely based true story. The director put his own spin on the incidents that happened to the 2008 Miss Sinaloa winner. Laura Zúñiga was arrested alongside her gang member friends for an incident that happened Guadalajara, Jalisco. Their truck had munitions inside it. It has never been proven, but the movie suggests her pageant was fixed by her criminal pals. You will enjoy this film for its action packed elements, but you should take it as a fictionalized story. Certain parts of the movie are based on Miss. Laura's life, while other parts of the movie are not based on her life.
