A revisionist comic western, presented by Sergio Leone, set at the turn of the century. Legendary gunfighter Jack Beauregard has decided to leave the American west behind to live peacefully in Europe. However, a young, mysterious loner named Nobody tries his hardest to make the aging outlaw go out in a blaze of glory. Although Beauregard -- said to be the fastest gun alive -- feels he has come to the end of his career and has shot enough opponents, Nobody doesn't want his hero to ride quietly into the sunset. Instead, he wants Jack to go up against the infamous Wild Bunch. After much goading, Beauregard starts to change his mind. Will the wisecracking Nobody convince his mentor to compete in one last duel? And if Jack does fight the 150 members of the villainous gang, can he actually defeat them?
