Originally released as a television movie in 1994.
Canaan is a roving gunfighter, blinded during the Civil War. Traveling across the country, he is held-up by a gang of Mexican bandits and their ruthless leader, Alacran, in a bloody shoot-out. The injured Canaan finds shelter in a small western town and soon restored to health by the gentle nursing of Caroline. There he discovers the town is being held hostage by Alacran who is greedy for a stash of government silver defended only by a handful of U.S. cavalrymen. Canaan has no loyalty to the government, but he does to its silver. In exchange for ten percent, he rides through Alacran's blockade in search of reinforcements, only to find the Cavalry butchered by the brutal gang.
Produced by Rick Nathanson; written by Daniel Knauf; directed by Richard Spence.
