Set in 1882, the film will follow a former slave who arrives in Yellowstone City, Montana, a desolate former boomtown now on the decline, looking for a place to call home. On that same day, a local prospector discovers gold – and is murdered. The sheriff arrests the town newcomer. But as the mystery of the prospector’s murder deepens, and the town’s earnest preacher questions the accused man’s guilt, a clash between faith and the law threatens to tear the town apart.
