When cowboy Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) witnesses the murder of his longtime
partner — the newly-elected Senator Edward Johnson (Peter Fonda) — he
strikes out to find the killers and avenge his friend's gruesome death.
Tracking the outlaws across the vast and desolate Montana plains, Lefty
recruits a young gunslinger, Jeremiah (Diego Josef), and an old friend, a
hard-drinking U.S. Marshall (Tommy Flanagan), to help deliver the men to
justice. After a gunfight with the outlaws leaves Jeremiah wounded, Lefty
returns home with the names of Johnson's killers only to find that he is
being accused of his friend's murder. With the tables turned, and with his
friend in the governor's mansion (Jim Caviezel) refusing to help, Lefty
must evade the law and prove his innocence by exposing the powerful men
ultimately responsible for Johnson's death. A thrilling and action-packed
Western, The Ballad of Lefty Brown is a story about loyalty, friendship,
and the relentless pursuit of justice.
