A good movie sustained by its story line and character development.
17 July 2006 | by fredbillieSee all my reviews

A man and his Nephew buy some horses and head out on a long trail drive to sell the horses and start a new life with the profit. Along the way they encounter many difficulties, rough terrain to conquer, Indians to appease, and a group of young Chinese girls who they rescue from the prospect of enslaved use in a whorehouse owned by a madam that bought them. The girls were sold into slavery by their parents and the culture of China in that age that devalued daughters over the more valuable sons.As the story line develops you can see the history of America's diverse culture unfold.

Some action but this drama is sustained mainly by great acting and the interaction of its main characters. Highly recommended but patience is needed as this 3 hour movie unfolds.
