What happens to middle school kids with a teacher who always talks about the history of the Far West? That one fine morning Sheriff Billy (age 10) arrives in Cactus-City to replace the old Yella Smith (15 years) near the guesthouse. The Apaches are on a war footing and the "Mexican bandidos" of the Zapitas (13 years old) are raging. For the big Village Festival the stagecoach brings Lou Lou, the most famous Saloon Star (9 years old). At this party the love between Lou Lou and Billy is born, contrasted by Crazy Horse (14 years old) madly in love with the "White Squaw". At the annual Rodeo, Billy wins and reaffirms his heroism, but is wounded in an ambush by Mad Horse. Zapitas and his Gang assault the Bank. The duel is inevitable and ends with Billy's triumph.

  1. Is this supposed to be a "What If" film about Billy The Kid because I highly doubt it?
