The story is set in 1872 when Kiefer Sutherland’s character retires as a gunfighter and returns to his hometown of Fowler, Wyoming in hope of repairing his relationship with his estranged father, who is also a reverend. He soon learns that the town is in turmoil, as the railroad will be coming through the area and a criminal gang is terrorizing ranchers who refuse to sell their land — but his father does not want his son to return to a life of violence.
Supporting cast includes Brian Cox, Michael Wincott, Greg Ellis and Aaron Poole.
