Horses, guns, dust, bandits and sheriffs, all in a country yet to be discovered, the Frontier, where living (and surviving) can turn into a daily battle, and winning isn’t easy.

1895, New Mexico. Billy is a seventeen-year-old boy who lives on a modest farm with his parents. Following an injustice suffered by his father, he risks turning into an outlaw, an avenger, destined for prison or the gallows. His friendship with a young Native American and his sister, as well as the wise advice of an elderly cowboy, will prevent Billy from falling into an abyss from which it would be difficult, if not impossible, for him to re-emerge.

  • A western story like they used to be, without steampunk elements or references to the present day.
  • A carefully designed kaleidoscope of typical Western characters (sheriffs, gunslingers, cowboys, outlaws, Indians).
  • Humour blends perfectly with adventure and highly dramatic moments.
