Endearingly eccentric sci-fi musical western about an interplanetary trader voyaging through a rustic and remote solar system, unaware that he’s is being pursued by old friend Professor Hess who wants to kill him. Cory McAbee’s wrote, directed, and stars in this surreal cult comedy which he describes as 'Buck Rogers meets Roy Rogers’.

‘A sui generis, love-it-or-hate-it exercise in homegrown American surrealism.’ Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, LA Weekly
