STRANGER

2009

“A Spaghetti Western with Songs”

The Nevada Desert. 1847. The tiny town of San Lorenzo is terrorized by a ruthless villain named Lagarto. He has brutally murdered the town’s sheriff, kidnapped his sixteen-year-old daughter Lucinda, and turned her into a killing machine with a taste for human flesh. The people of San Lorenzo are too weak to fight, but Miranda Coolidge, owner of the local saloon has something Lagarto wants— a secret treasure that the late sheriff hid somewhere in the desert, and when a stranger with a mysterious past blows into town, she and the local preacher find real reason to hope.
