The ex-pat recluses hiding out in a tumbledown Baja beachfront settllement have only one desire: they want to be left alone. And they are—until a mysterious government drone plummets into the desert next to their tumbledown settlement. The high-tech air war that follows lights up the Mexican skies, and the carnage from that battle spills down on Punta Gringa’s vagabonds, scuttling their dreams. Drone Baloney ($11.95) chronicles the efforts of this quirky band that fights against progress they don’t enjoy. John Hewitt is a Los Angeles native who has pursued the art of avoiding potholes while driving through Mexico. He currently lives in northern California.
