  • The American West, late-1800s. A stage coach sets off across the untamed wilderness carrying a mixed assortment of characters: an infamous outlaw, a drunk doctor, a prostitute, a whiskey salesman, the wife of an Army officer, a gambler, a bank manager, the local Marshall and the driver. Animosities and petty differences, and unexpected friendships, surface. Their fortunes take a turn for the worse when they learn that an Apache raiding party, lead by Geronimo, is in their vicinity.

  • In 1880, a motley assortment of interesting strangers boards the Overland stagecoach from Tonto in Arizona, heading to Lordsburg in New Mexico.

Inevitably, however, as the coach and six dashes through the vast plains and Geronimo's Apache-infested land, only the mighty U. S. Cavalry can save the day.
