Bill Miner, having served 33 years in San Quentin for stage coach robbery, is released in 1901. He stays for awhile with his sister but leaves because "I got ambition in me that just won't quit." Along with a new partner, he pulls off several train robberies. Miner then settles down in a small Canadian town, falls in love with a feminist photographer, and even impresses the young constable with his charm. But the Pinkertons are on his trail.
Richard Farnswroth (the weather-beaten cowboy in Comes a Horsemen) brings the legendary Bill Miner to life with an offbeat grace and wisdom. This extraordinary actor emanates roguish strength and independence. Directory Philip Borsos capitalizes on the beauty of the environment, the universality of the emotions aroused, and then simplicity of his tale in this award-winning Canadian film.
