Academy Award® winners Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank and Meryl Streep star in this action epic set in America’s West in the 1850’s. Mary Bee Cuddy is an independent frontier woman, living a life of solitude. When three women are declared insane by the local preacher (John Lithgow), she volunteers for the dangerous task of taking them to Ohio, where a minister’s wife is waiting for their lost souls. Along the way she stumbles across a reprobate claim-jumper, and agrees to save his life in exchange for his help. Together the unlikely pair are pushed to their limits as they traverse the harsh, untamed.
