    This a western, a true western: cowboys, whisky, Colts, Bad-lands-like landscapes and so one. The movie was entirely shot in Romania, reflecting the great variety of landscapes this country has. All the actors are famous Romanian ones and they speak a quite decent English during 70% of the movie!!! Dialogs remember a bit the ones in the American 1940s westerns.

    The movie tells the story of three Romanian brothers (from Transylvania actually) who, having crossed Europe and the Atlantic, are trying to settle in the US Great Plains. One is hunting down "wanted"-criminals to finance the ranch (or rather a house falling apart) his younger brother bought. The younger brother gets married to an American girl whereas the older one is hanging around with the ranch neighbors, ironically a Hungarian family from Transylvania.

    But, the local badman wants to get the three brother's ranch as he knows there is some oil lying underneath. Hence...
