Bill Munny, a retired, once ruthless killer-turned-hog farmer, is flat broke. A widower with two young children to tend to, he feels he has no choice but to accept one last bounty hunter mission to find and kill two young gunslingers who brutalized and cut up the face of a local prostitute. Bill teams up with his old partner Ned and the cocky greenhorn, The Schofield Kid. The three men soon find out this bounty has many more obstacles to overcome besides just finding and killing the gunslingers. Little Bill is the town sheriff of Old Whiskey who keeps a tight hold on what goes on in his town and outlaws all firearms within the city limits. He has little respect for assassins and hired guns, and enforces his law with the most brutal of measures.
