It's set in the 1880's and is about Frank Griffin played by Jack Daniels, an outlaw terrorizing the American West, who is hunting for his former partner.

A battle between good and evil forces follows, loaded with thrilling action scenes, rampant horses and cathartic moments. Vegas is not the best show in the genre, but not a redundant one either.
