In the American West at the turn of the century, a gang of ruthless bandits led by Charlie Ledbetter (Barry Corbin) arrives at the ranch of Charlie Hancock (Willie Nelson) and shoots to death. His young sons are allowed to survive. Thirteen years later, the older boy (Brad Hunt) is known as the Morphinist--a morphine addict who is also an indiscriminate killer. The younger brother (Daniel Lapaine) is The Journeyman, a silent type who tracks his brother in hopes of redeeming his soul. After the Morphinist robs the mining company run by Ledbetter, the Journeyman becomes part of Ledbetter's gang--without them knowing his true identity--in order to save his brother from destruction. THE JOURNEYMAN is a bold, experimental, and contemporary western which injects vital, contemporary blood into a rapidly declining genre.
