The year is 1875.
In the savage frontiers of the American Old West, some men were destined for Fame. Some for Riches. Morgan Kane was destined to be an outlaw. Forged by the childhood tragedy of his parents' murder, Kane learned early to let his gun do the talking, yet he always knew right from wrong.
Hot on the trail of thieves who stole his gold, Kane ventures into the Sonora highlands of Mexico, where he is promptly thrown in jail by a sheriff who makes him a terrifying bargain: he can die against a wall, or bring back the head of the most wanted bandit in Sonora -- the elusive Coyote.
Kane shoots his way out of trouble, and then right back into it, finding himself face to face with Coyote's Colt .45. Ironically, Coyote is impressed with Kane and persuades him to join his gang. Kane finally agrees and the desperadoes roam the countryside looking for wine, women, and of course banks. They are the most feared yet beloved outlaws in all of Mexico. Winning the eye of more than one fair maiden, Kane's gunslinging leaves spectators awestruck, and the fame of "El Gringo" is born.
Until they rob the wrong bank! Owned by the head of a family dynasty, Don Alfonso. He isn't worried about the money they stole. He has a more sinister plan. He wants the gang to sabotage and bring down the operation of his rival, a cutthroat cattleman muscling in from Texas, named Borden.
Caught in the feud they embark on a daring mission. As double crosses pile up and loyalty blurs, Kane is pulled towards a showdown with his own destiny, where the only way through is the way of the gun. And when the smoke clears the world will understand why to this very day, there are those in Sonora who still tell the story…still speak of the legend…of El Gringo.
