Race Fallon, an aging outlaw and famous gunman, has just been released from prison. He meets up with Britt, a young tough who recognizes him as the idol of his youth. Race wants only to hang up his gun forever and tend the ranch of his sweet old Aunt Jen. Britt is reluctant to believe that Race is through with his old life, as he hungers for the excitement of being an outlaw, but is so dazzled by Race that he begs to accompany him to his Aunt Jen's ranch even if he isn't going to be joining him in exciting crimes, and Race reluctantly agrees. However, thanks to Britt, word gets around that Race is free again, and two of his old partners in crime come to his aunt's ranch, insistent that Race pull off another caper with them.

An aging outlaw does not want to be a legend anymore
18 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Race Fallon an notorious aging outlaw has just been released from prison after serving five years. He is on his way home when he runs a young buck named Britt. Britt, a kind of youngster always looking for trouble and believes he wants to live his life without any rules, is thrilled to have run into such a legend in the form of Race Fallon. Britt asks if he could ride along with him as he returns home.

Race rides up to a farm house that is occupied by his Aunt Jen. He is hoping that he will be able to live his life quietly away from criminal activities. Race is tired and just wants to live out the remaining time as a farmer. But that will be difficult.

Britt rides into a nearby town and announced to the people that he rides with Race Fallon. This brings the local Sheriff to the farm asking Race not to enter his town. It also brings in two former gang members of Race that wants to pick up right where they left off. Between the Sheriff, his old gang members and a mentor in Britt- Race knows that he will never be able to live his life without trouble round every turn. Race, the legend, is old and tired and just wants to sleep. He has got to find a way to rest at any cost.

The story played out well. Kept the interest of the viewer to the very end with a good script and fine acting. Even with the dialog getting long at times, the show held up with the interaction of the characters. Good Watch.
