Netflix writes that Sky Rojo follows "Coral," "Wendy" and "Gina" as they "embark on a frenetic race during which they will have to face many dangers. Their only plan: to stay alive for five more minutes."

The trailer dropped in early March and it already has nearly half-a-million views in that time. As the preview shows, the women hit the road and fend off violent pursuers during a stylishly-shot and fast-paced chase.
