A good contender for worst stinker in spanish western history, I don't know where to start to talk about it. This is a close relative of the homemade Malopasso, but at least in Colomba's video you have a laugh once in a while. Here they strain toward veracity and the contrast between ambitions and poor means (and generalized amateurishness) comes to the fore incessantly. A farmer turns himself in a railway agent to exact his revenge against some gang which robbed him of a reward for having killed their boss. The gang is at the service of somebody who doesn't want the railway to pass through a particular piece of land (maybe I missed the why of it, as I saw this movie in spanish). 1\10
