Mike Norton (Pepper) has just moved to town to join the border patrol with his beautiful young wife Lou Ann (Jones). Around the same time local rancher Pete Perkins ( Jones) finds the body of his beloved ranch hand Melquiades Estrada (Cedillo) in a shallow grave in the desert and Norton and Perkins' destinies are set to cross. Lee's open hearted love letter to Peckinpah's unsurpassable 1974 revenge Western 'Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia' demonstrates Lee's gift for intelligent cinematic reference, brevity and emotional impact.
