Synopsis

When three women are driven insane on the edges of the American frontier, the task of delivering them back east falls to a pious spinster named Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank). The daunting challenge of driving a wagon loaded with madwomen four hundred miles compels her to employ a partner—a drifting low-life who goes by the name of ‘George Briggs’ (Tommy Lee Jones). Together, the unlikely pair head out across the prairie with their freakish cargo, re-traversing the harsh, untamed Nebraska Territories in a journey marked by stark beauty, constant threat, and psychological peril.
