Probably the most authentic Western ever made, this gripping adventure film recounts the true story of the largest manhunt in Texas history. In June 1901, six hundred Texas Rangers chased Gregorio Cortez (Edward James Olmos), a Mexican-American ranch hand, for eleven days across 450 miles of terrain.

Was Cortez a cold-blooded killer or an innocent man fleeing injustice? You decide.

"The crime, a simple misunderstanding. The pursuit, an American saga. The legacy, a triumph of the spirit. The man, Gregorio Cortez. The Truth Behind the Legend"
