Young, desperate and on the run...
Hunter Leroux is seventeen, angry and going nowhere when he and his buddies Billy Prescott, fifteen, and Wade Canter, eighteen, decide to hop a freight train out of the depressed New England factory town of Barren Falls, Massachusetts. Their goal: To escape their troubles and the small-town hopelessness, and live like the outlaws of the Old West, robbing from the rich and giving to the poor - themselves. Their destination: Buffalo country and the Black Hills of South Dakota.But will they make it?Hunter, who's bitter and disillusioned with life following the death of his estranged father, and Wade, a tough but abused city kid with a lengthy arrest record, are already wanted by the police back home. They aren't thinking about the new troubles they'll be making for themselves. Troubles that begin when they assault an old man and steal his car. And Billy, innocent and unassuming, simply longs to see the wild buffalo, but makes a choice before leaving that puts their plans in jeopardy.Complicating matters: As they slowly journey westward, Hunter becomes increasingly haunted by his past and begins to wonder if what they're doing is going to be worth much of anything in the end.
