Retribution is a western that deals with the differences between what is legally right and what is morally right. It deals with a time that is surrounded by change but seems to be as stagnate as ever. It focuses on themes and issues that are still examined by society today: law, the judicial system, race, firearms, violence and justice.
How do you decide...law or retribution?
RETRIBUTION is the new feature western from Archlight Studios and Pirate Pictures. The film is currently in development after having shot an extensive test reel.
