Slow West

Jay, a 17-year-old Scotsman, travels to the American West in the late 19th century in pursuit of the woman he loves. Confronted with the harsh realities of the frontier, he falls in with a mysterious traveller, Silas, who soon discovers that the focus of Jay’s affection has a price on her head. Together the two men navigate a vast wilderness while attempting to stay one step ahead of a bloodthirsty posse and a colourful bounty hunter.
