Its 1871 in the Wild West and ex-pat Danish solider Jon, (Mads Mikkelsen) is welcoming his wife and ten year old son after their long journey from Denmark. Opting to take the stagecoach to his farm near Black Creek, the family are also joined by two drunken outlaws not long released from prison. It doesn’t take long for the journey to take a turn for the worse as one of the bandits attempts to touch up Jon’s wife and threatens his young boy.
As Jon takes matters into his own hands, it sets in motion a series of serious repercussions, not only for Jon, but for the local community. Unfortunatley for Jon one of the bandits was the brother of a notorious gang leader and outlaw, Delarue’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who demands that compensation is needed in the form of human lives.
The town’s sheriff/priest (Douglas Henshall) and mayor/undertaker (Jonathan Pryce) are helpless to do anything but to bow down to Delarue and his gang. With Delarue also taking advantage of his brother’s demise by having his way with his beautiful mute wife, Madelaine (Eva Green), its up to Jon and his brother Peter (Mikael Persbrandt) to survive, restore order and take revenge.
