It's been five years since the end of the American Civil War. A lonely, worn-out man is sitting by a fire in a clearing, when the silence is suddenly torn apart by a shot. The man is hit in the shoulder, but without a mine he gets up and runs away. Shortly afterwards, Colonel Carver and his men enter the clearing. He has a clenched expression and cold, hard eyes. He is looking for revenge, and this is just the beginning of a hunt that will lead the two men around an America that is still rising after the devastating civil war.
