Set in 1882, a mysterious fugitive seeks out his revenge on the person who landed him in prison. Â His tracking skills lead him to the quiet, peaceful town of Wichita, KS. Â Otherwise referred to asÂ The Cowtown, Wichita as a community is well aware of itâ€™s own growth and is beginning the ascent from small farm village to a cross-cultural industrial metropolitan, which ultimately lends our principle characters the backdrop it needs to blend in with the changing landscape of the city.
Jesse,Â a nomadic drifter, takes up residence at a farmstead on the outskirts of the city and quickly develops relationships with the widow Ruth and the sisters Samantha and Mary. Â What first appears like a colloquial family-upbringing unravels an underground crime syndicate living under the guise of the local business community. Â While Jesse seeks to confront some of the townspeople, a bounty hunter is employed to track the whereabouts of the mysterious man in black. Â As the backstory of each character unfolds, Â a web of circumstance leads Â Jesse, the mysterious fugitive, the townspeople, and the bounty hunter to find out thereâ€™s far more than meets the eye in this sleepy Cowtown.
This cat-mouse-cat noir will keep everyone guessing until the last scene on whoâ€™s really who they say they are. The film explores the nature of identity, the powerful ego functions of revenge, and the ever-present events of the past as they conform the events of the present. Â
This film is intended for mature audiences.
