Based on the seminal novel by John Williams, Butcher’s Crossing is a frontier epic that follows a young Harvard drop-out into the Colorado wilderness as he joins a team of buffalo hunters in search of a mythic herd of buffalo. Little does he know, the journey will put his life and sanity at risk. The adventure is both sublime and horrific, where a confrontation with dark truth leads to a descent into madness. Detailing a gripping and largely untold chapter in American history, Butcher's Crossing is a riveting commentary on human nature, masculinity, and man’s relationship to his natural environment.
