Production wraps on a Hollywood western in a remote Peruvian village but stuntman Kansas remains, attempting to find redemption in isolation and the arms of a former prostitute. Meanwhile, local Indians have taken over the abandoned set and begun staging a ritualistic re-enactment of the production.
Dennis Hopper’s misunderstood countercultural masterpiece almost ruined his career: and that’s not the half of it! A drug-fueled production, stellar cast (Peter Fonda! Sam Fuller! Kris Kristofferson!) and stunning Peruvian setting turn this wild artistic feat into unforgettable cinema.
