    • Synopsis
    • Caleb, a young wanderer lost and alone in a mysterious wood, equipped with a single pack of belongings, sits by a campfire. Ian, a woodsman is drawn to the smoke. Recognizing Caleb’s need for a “place to be,” Ian offers him a ride. They travel through the woods to Ian’s truck where they begin their journey to El Paso, or “The Pass,” a place lost in time, a rhinestone cowboy’s pipe-dream.
      They are initially welcomed by the Iron Caballos, a biker gang, where they butt heads with the dangerous Lazareth. Caleb and Ian’s brush with danger seems imminent, but is sidestepped, and they enter the town.
      Ian drops Caleb off at a run down inn, “The Cactus,” and rents a room from a comically foul clerk.
      Caleb finds himself at the local cantina/brothel, “Rosa’s,” run by the tough but kind-hearted woman of the same name. It is here that Caleb meets Faleena, Rosa’s “Mexican Maiden” and most popular girl. They are immediately drawn to one another, and a passionate romance blossoms between them.
      Meanwhile, a handsome and mysterious stranger by the name of Cody rolls into town and enters a rodeo competition. Cody’s arrival in El Paso is soon followed by Grant. This dark-driven ranger is trailing Cody, infamously known as “Texas Red,” an outlaw wanted for multiple murders across the southwest.
      Caleb is living his ideal desperado life, complete with his girl and a newly purchased pistol. One night he makes his way down to Rosa’s to declare his love to Faleena. His “cloud nine” happiness is shattered upon arrival. His love is in the arms of another man, a handsome Caballo named Diego. In a jealous rage, Caleb draws and shoots the man dead.
      The gang members quickly respond in kind with a barrage of gunfire aimed at Caleb. Caleb escapes Rosa’s and flees to the woods. The Iron Caballos pursue him hotly.
