This film features Merritt, an ageing philosophical cowboy and his horse. Together they embody a dying breed and spirit of the ‘wild west’ as they befriend a young modern cowboy neighbor who works with cattle.
Spectacular footage of the round-up the last big herd of wild horses that roam free on the prairies are part of the vanishing romantic 'cowboy' lifestyle and Old West.
