El Muerto

On his deathbed, a rugged cowboy tells his two brothers and wife about the gold he found. And so they ride out, into the wild, fantasizing about their future wealth. Steve, a good-for-nothing drunkard, needs to pay off his gambling debts. His older brother and priest, Luke, wants to build a flamboyant church. And Ellen dreams about the sophisticated city-life. But the gold is less than expected and not everyone is willing to give up on their dream.
