Sam Shepard stars in this Western as a middle-aged Butch Cassidy. Nearly 20 years on from the infamous standoff in which he and the Sundance Kid supposedly died, an ageing Butch Cassidy (Sam Shepard), now known as Blackthorn, is living a quiet life in Bolivia, keeping his head down and earning his way by breeding horses. But when he meets Spanish robber Eduardo Apodaca and hears of his daring heist plan, he realises this could be his big chance not only to relive the glory days but to buy his way back home.

Longtime screenwriter Mateo Gil (Open Your Eyes, The Sea Inside) returns to the director's chair for his second feature, a continuation of the Butch Cassidy saga that finds the famed outlaw embarking on one last adventure in the quest to meet his son for the very first time. Twenty years after he presumably perished in a violent gun fight, Butch (Sam Shepard) learns that he has a son in the U.S. Returning home to meet his boy won't be easy, though, because a quick-draw cowboy (Eduardo Noriega) is about to take Butch on the ride of his life. Meanwhile, an obsessive ex-railroad employee (Stephen Rea) is closing in on Butch, and preparing to pull the trigger.
