Set in west Texas, the film follows a boy who, after his sister is kidnapped by a violent killer known only as Cut Throat Bill (Juliette Lewis), enlists a fierce bounty hunter named Reginald Jones (Peter Dinklage) who grudgingly becomes the leader of the group of outcasts searching for the stolen girl.

Jack Parker (Levin Hawke) knows all too well how treacherous turn-of-the-century East Texas can be. His parents did not survive a smallpox epidemic. His grandfather was murdered. Now his sister Lula (Esme Creed-Miles) has been kidnapped by a criminal who may believe wearing a dead man’s clothes protects them both from death. 

With bounty hunter Shorty, a charismatic and cunning dwarf, and Eustace, a gravedigging son of an ex-slave, the heartbroken young Jack sets off on an epic quest to rescue his sister from the corrupt men who control much of the new territory. 

Producer: Tubi.
