Synopsis

Every year the finest gunmen of the American West meet up at Redemption. Herod who rules the small city, organises a tournament of duels. Until now, he has always won. His quick trigger is his best asset for elections. But, this year an unexpected event will thwart his plans. Ellen, a young outsider, will take part in the competition. But for her, the stakes are higher than just money. Who could recognise, twenty years later, the young girl in tears whose father, Redemption's sheriff, was tortured to death by Herod. Motivated by vengeance, by the want of respect or the desire to free the city of its tyrant, all the competitors have the same goal: to overrule Herod. Ellen will have to face her memories, her inner demons and many opponents, before reaching the moment she has waited for since her childhood. She will need much more than just a duel to succeed.
