Sideways star Thomas Hayden Church appears alongside Academy Award-winner Robert Duvall in a dramatic mini-series shot in the classic western tradition. The year is 1897. As Print Ritter (Duvall) and his estranged nephew Tom Harte (Church) travel the slow road to reconciliation, they reluctantly find themselves forced to care for five abused and abandoned Chinese immigrants while simultaneously attempting to deliver a herd of horses across the plains. Soon confronted by a gang of malevolent kidnappers who intend to abduct the girls and use them for the own nefarious purposes, Print and Tom determine to keep their young charges out of harms way while ensuring that their valuable delivery reaches its intended destination.~Jason Buchanan
A beautiful Western movie, but at times rough and violent. Not for children 13 and under. It shows prostitution and slavery as a business, talks of venereal disease, revealing tight corsets and brief nudity of young Chinese women as they are being inspected. Life is shown as rough and out in the Western country. In one scene, a lame horse is not treated, but suddenly shot in the head.
