Set in the expansive landscape of the great western frontier, Jeff Daniels plays a menacing outlaw named Frank Griffin who is terrorizing the West as he hunts down Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell), his son-like partner turned mortal enemy.
As Roy hides at the ranch of Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery), Frank’s chase leads him to the quiet town of La Belle, New Mexico which is mysteriously made up entirely of women.

Valentine.
