Film Synopsis

A recently orphaned young English woman is immigrating to the American West to live with her uncle on his ranch. She finds herself in a dangerous and unpredictable world when she is kidnapped by The Man, a rugged outlaw and a savage man with a secret even he didn’t know he had. Adventure, drama and comedy ensue as these social opposites collide. With a posse hot on the chase, the unlikely duo must help each other survive. Italian filmmakers of the 60s were successful in making the great Spaghetti Westerns in Italy and Spain, and now New Zealand filmmakers take advantage of their talent and the breathtaking landscapes of Central Otago in the South Island of New Zealand, producing the first Pavlova Western. Director Mike Wallis has been called “the next Peter Jackson.”
