Linewatch is a 2008 crime film starring Cuba Gooding, Jr. Gooding plays veteran United States border patrol agent Michael Dixon. He is well-respected by his peers and loved by his family, wife Angela (Sharon Leal) and daughter Emily (Deja Warrior). However, he was not always a dedicated family man. Dixon was once a member of a violent street gang in Los Angeles, High Noon Gang (HNG). His past comes back to haunt him as he watches over the United States/Mexico border. Dixon and his partner Luis DeSanto (Omar Paz Trujillo) discover a van full of dead illegal immigrants. That sends them on the search for the coyote who abandoned them. During their search, Dixon recognizes a member of his old gang, Cook (Malieek Straughter) and uncovers a drug-smuggling plot that involves many old friends. Dixon must confront his former gang leader, Kimo (Omari Hardwick), while working to protect his family and colleagues.
