The true story of a recently widowered lawman who befriends a boy dying of tuberculosis and a madam of the local brothel while their town is being politically and violently overtaken by a gang of reckless cattlemen from Texas.
Burnt out lawman Mike McCluskie is forced to protect his town as the deepening divide is growing between the Ohio Railroad Workers and the Texas Cattle Men who are terrorizing the citizens of Hyde Park. Based on real events, McCluskie calls on the support of the local brothel owner Rosie and James Riley, a young vagrant dying of tuberculosis, who collectively, transform Hyde Park into one of the bloodiest and violent places in America.

Perfect western movie
This isn't one of your grandma's genre films. It's a solid western movie, but really stands on its own as a drama genre that happens to be set in the Old Wild West. The casting is GREAT and it feels like the characters exist in a genuine world.
This movie will not be forgotten to those who really appreciate excellent movies like this. The scenes are astronomical!
