A tale of love, hope and revenge set against the vicious backdrop of a lawless society. A young scholar from New York city travels west in search of a new life; he arrives beaten and half-dead. A local girl gives him purpose in a broken land, but is it enough to save him from the vicious outlaw who wants him dead? He must make the choice: to turn and run, or to stand for what he believes, to live or to fight; to become the man who shot Liberty Valance.
