Synopsis
A Western Neo-Noir tale of the timeless conflict between a charismatic crime boss, an idealistic young gun, and a damsel in distress.

 
This stylish, taut psychological thriller brings young wannabe outlaw Luc Kennedy, who idealizes 1950’s Western pop culture, into the circle of Cash, the eloquent embodiment of the archetypal gun-slinging outlaw he’s long idolized. To prove himself, Luc is tasked with the removal of Cash’s jaded mistress — the damsel Lila — and his romantic ideals face harsh realities as he’s forced to choose sides between the angels and the outlaws. A character-driven drama by Ashland’s own Malcolm King-Fontana, self-taught teen filmmaker whose singular voice crafts a world of its own. Featuring a rich soundtrack of Waylon Jennings, accompanied by an original acoustic noir score. [mature]
