When notorious American gunslinger The Montana Kid (Gross) staggers into the tiny Canadian hamlet of Barclay’s Brush, life gets exciting. The Kid immediately gets into an altercation with Jack (Mane), the town’s blacksmith, which leads him to challenge Jack to a duel. However, when he can’t find a single working pistol, adhering to the code of the American Wild West proves difficult.
Unable to let go of the “code,” The Kid remains in town, slowly drawn in by the foreign customs of his hosts, especially Jane (Guillory), a smart, sassy woman who becomes The Kid’s only hope of finding a way out, or perhaps his only reason for staying.
“Evocative lensing by cinematographer Gregory Middleton, who makes mountainous Osoyoos, B.C., look like a scene from a John Ford movie.” — Peter Howell, The Toronto Star
