HEATHENS & THIEVES
Dirs. Megan Peterson & John Douglas Sinclair | 110min | US

When two drifters hear rumors that a Chinese railroad worker has absconded with stolen gold and now owns a remote ranch in the wilds of Northern California, the desperate men put a plan into motion to steal the "Chinaman's gold" themselvesquickly, before other interested parties close in.

Saul, the younger of the drifters, uses his charm and his skill with horses to get hired on as a ranch hand, while his grizzled mentor Bill lurks in the shadows on the perimeter. To betray his new Chinese boss Zhen into revealing the treasure's location, Saul tries any trick he can think of, even playing on the sexual tension stirring between him and Zhen's beautiful wife, Kun Hua.

But the game has begun too late. One by one, other parties arrive: a group of mercenaries representing ruthless bankers, a shady gunman who might or might not be a federal marshal, and the racist local sheriff and his deputyall have motives of their own. Saul finds himself up against far worse men than himself and is forced to shift plans and allegiances in a deadly multi-sided face-off of bluffs, gambles, and betrayals as he struggles to find the gold and come out alive.

Saul's chances hinge on Kun Hua, who has motives of her ownbut as this austere yet seductive woman's actions lure the household dangerously closer to a bloodbath, Saul is forced to question: Who is she really betraying?
