Two aging but still capable gunfighters re-form their old bunch to revenge the killing of one of their previous members. They join forces with an ex-sheriff named Dalton and the murder member’s son. This Western filmed in Spain is full of action and violence. The movie contains gun-play, action Western, bloody spectacle and fist-fights. The good guys are performed by American actors while the bad guys are portrayed by Spanish players such as Simon Andreu, Sancho Gracia and Tony Isbert. It's an offbeat, thrilling and uneven Western particularly influenced by Sergio Leone, for that reason it will appeal to Spaghetti aficionados.

This made for TV western was written by Gene Quintano and filmed around the same time Quintano was filming ‘Dollar for the Dead’ in Almeria, Spain using several of Sergio Leone’s sets and locations. The film was originally aired on the CBS network on January 24, 1999.
