AMC's epic western mini series, directed by Walter Hill (DEADWOOD), stars Robert Duvall (LONESOME DOVE, THANK YOU FOR SMOKING) and Thomas Haden Church (SIDEWAYS) as an uncle-and-nephew team of cowboys, charged with running a herd of horses through the Wild West. The pair encounter a group of Chinese girls who are being sold into prostitution, and after saving them from that bitter fate, they find themselves charged with their care. The film is based on the novel by Alan Geoffrion.
