James Conner's childhood is destroyed in a flash of a single gunshot when his father (William Sadler,€œThe Shawshank Redemptionâ€) is murdered by the town's psychotic saloon owner Will Tunney (Angus Macfadyen,€œBraveheartâ€) Fifteen years later James returns as an aimless bounty hunter, to claim the bounty on Will's head and reunite with his childhood sweetheart, Mary Cooper (Marnie Alton,€œLove On The Side.â€)
Will has become even more powerful and crushes James, leaving him for dead. When two Native Americans, Washakie (Michael Spears,€œDances With Wolvesâ€) and Miakoda (Tonantzin Carmelo,€œInto the West,â€) find James they challenge him to forgive and not seek vengeance. James must look within himself to release his past and not be ruined by it. A beautiful and stunning epic, Shadowheart is a haunting tale of lost love and revenge.
