A frontier woman turns fugitive when she is wrongly accused of a crime she didn't commit and is hunted by a vengeful preacher
This triumphant epic Western is a tale of survival and female resistance against the unforgiving cruelty of a hell on earth. When a demonic preacher turns up in a frontier town it is to the utter distress of a mute midwife (Dakota Fanning) who is living there with her family.
Liz obviously knows the priest, and she is terrified, and he soon demonstrates why.

“An intriguing slant on the spaghetti western…”
