Edward James Olmos, James Gammon,
Tom Bower & Bruce McGill
A True Story
It is 1901, and two Texas cultures the Anglo and the Mexican live side by side in a state of tension and fear. On June 12 Gregorio Cortez (Edward Olmos), a young Mexican family man, shoots and kills a sheriff in self-defense. For the next 11 days, he eludes an inflamed possee of 600 Texas Rangers in a 450 mile chase across Texas. His manhunt captures the nation's interest, and his eventual trial is tainted by the extreme emotions of the country.
To some, Cortez becomes an instant folk-hero; to most others, however, he is considered a very dangerous criminal. It takes 12 years to learn the truth.
Running time 105 minutes.
