The film is an unsettling trans-historical vision of the Wild West that collides with the suppressed history of the multi-racial American West and the conflicts breaking up contemporary East London. In a vanishing frontier, swarming with calculating surveyors, corrupt lawmen and hired thugs, a lone gunfighter must avenge the dispossessed, or remain trapped in a state of limbo, haunted by the past and pitted against a future which offers no retreat and no alternatives.
