In the year 1879, in a mountainous region of post-Rush California, a waning mining town is awakened when two brazen cowboys, GRADY and CHARLES, play a roulette duel for the hand of a woman, VICTORIA. But when Victoria interrupts the duel, she shocks the men in revealing she will instead marry the duel's overseer, RED. Enraged and humiliated, Charles and Grady fire at the departing couple, and in the luck of the draw, two bullets hit Red, killing him. The amused cowboys leave Victoria crouched over her dead Red, but as a lady's luck will have it, she outsmarts them. Victoria reveals she is a bounty hunter. She will collect the bounty on Red's head, alive or dead. Written by
