Set in the 1930s, amid the devastation of the Dust Bowl, the story follows a fifteen-year-old boy on his quest to capture a fugitive bank robber and collect the bounty on her head, all with the goal of saving his family farm from foreclosure and begin a new life.

“Dust Bowl, in general, was obviously a man-made natural disaster, it was something that threatened an entire section of the country and now we see a lot of the same things that are happening. Then we didn’t learn our lessons. I think, in that sense, this film is incredibly relevant.”
