It’s Wyoming Territory, 1892. Saloons are empty, work is scarce, and the legends called cowboys bide their time in general stores. It’s the twilight of the Old West, and the sun’s setting on Monte Walsh (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Tom Selleck, Magnum P.I., In & Out ), “the best Bronc rider south of Snake River.” But the taciturn roughneck, whose livelihood is growing out from under him, still has his old roping buddies, Chet Rollins (Emmy and Oscar winner Keith Carradine, The Outsider, Nashville) and Shorty Austin (George Eads, C.S.I.), to scale cattle country with and remind him of more dynamic days. He also has Martine (Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Isabella Rossellini, Merlin, The Odyssey), the lonely lady of the Harmony Saloon, who still offers a warm night—and a pure love that loners like she and Monte would never acknowledge. In this time of transition, the greatest challenges for Monte will be those of the heart and the human spirit.
