Sin, passion, fight for survival and bloody revenge in the Wild West in the late 1800's. The modern Western reinvigorates the classic genre through the brutality of religious fanaticism and a fascinating female protagonist. Young Liz and her family find themselves in danger when a reverend shows up in their town and starts preaching Biblical vengeance upon all sinners. The film was warmly welcomed during its premiere at the Venice IFF.
