Best Runner Up Amateur/College Short Film Elkhorn Valley Film and New Media Festival 2012
Official Selection Omaha Film Festival 2012

In 1875, Anderson, Jones and McKay were taken from their cells, chained together, and then taken to the middle of the prairie and left to die. They must not only survive the harsh Nebraska winter with only the clothes on their back, but one another, as each has his own motivations. And they must do so before a mysterious rider dressed all in black catches up with them.
