Product Description:

Director Uli Edel (BODY OF EVIDENCE) helmed this tale of the Old West in 1999. Set in a town called Refuge, Wild Bill Hickok (Sam Shepard), Doc Holliday (Randy Quaid), and Jesse James (J.D. Souther) are among the inhabitants, even though they've long since passed away. The town is actually Purgatory, a middle ground for reckless outlaws who must prove themselves to be worthy of a place in Heaven, or face an eternity rotting in the pit of Hell. No one who resides in Refuge is allowed to carry a gun, nor is there any jail, or even swearing. So when a wild bunch of desperados turn up, led by Blackjack Britton (Eric Roberts), they are surprised at what they find. Britton and his men soon realize they are among some illustrious company, and set about taking the town for their own. The TNT channel originally aired this compelling sci-fi western that saddles up its horse and rides out of town to a satisfyingly explosive conclusion.

Description by Warner Home Video:

Between somewhere and nowhere in the untamed West is the small town of Refuge. There, neither the sheriff nor his deputy carry a sidearm. There's no jail either, because shooting, carousing and bad blood are not in the town's character. What peaceful folks live there' Wild Bill Hickok. Doc Holliday. Jesse James. Billy the Kid. All long dead. All mysteriously given a chance to undo their violent pasts in Purgatory. All put to a stern test when Blackjack and his ornery gang ride into town.
