The killing of a political leader shatters the peace of a small Mexican town. MANCO, the brother of the murdered presidential candidate knows the killer and sets out to exact his revenge. Arriving to investigate the assassination is special agent AMIGO from the Mexican Intelligence. Amigo quickly strikes up a friendship with a local hotel owner who fills him in on the town's seedy characters and gives Amigo a Single Action revolver. The stage is set for Amigo and Manco to join forces and take down the powerful and dangerous CAMARO family responsible for the murder and the corruption of the town. To gain the confidence of Camaro, Amigo breaks his top henchman out of jail. Amigo is welcomed into the Camaro gang. Camaro soon discovers Amigo's connection with Manco and plots to take him out. The situation reaches a boiling point on the US/Mexican border when Amigo, Manco, and Camaro meet for an old-fashioned Western shootout where truth and justice prevail in one single action.

This movie was dedicated to SERGIO LEONE. The Film is based on actual Political events of Mexico, but the Film language had to be rural. Being a Sergio fan, we decided to make something fast. we were creating something to tell, not something original. That's it. Very Simple. This Movie was shot in 11 days, with a budget of $11,OOO.OO dollars. It's the only movie in Existence that followed our "EL MARIACHI" production tricks, shot in the same town, using the same sets. This was just another example that films like "EL MARIACHI" can be done For a Few Dollars More. This Film was shot on 16MM. The 35MM print had a cost of almost $90,000.00 dollars. The reason for the print was because Germany and japan wanted the film for the cinemas. In reality I made this very clear from the beginning. "We are making this film for the video market and nothing else". To My surprise the sales at AFM were over my expectations and a 35MM print needed to be delivered. In the summer of 1997 "SINGLE ACTION" broke the records of YORK ENTERTAINMENT, making the company grow. KINGSIZE ENTERTAINMENT'S job was only on the Post-production, and the EXECUTIVE PRODUCER'S credit was given to them because we finished the film in their facilities and with their contacts help. That's it. That's the Single Trivia.
