You can’t bury the past.

“Old Henry” is an action-Western about a widowed farmer and his son who warily take in a mysterious, injured man with a satchel of cash.

When a posse of men claiming to be the law come for the money, the farmer must decide whom to trust. Defending against a siege of his homestead, he reveals a talent for gunslinging that surprises everyone, calling his true identity into question.

“Old Henry” stars Tim Blake Nelson, Scott Haze and Gavin Lewis, with Trace Adkins and Stephen Dorff.

“I’ve had a love of westerns since I was a kid,” said director Potsy Ponciroli. “The lawlessness of the unsettled Wild West has been romanticized and fueled stories of iconic characters for generations. Stories of heroes and villains. Good vs. evil on the most basic level.”

“Old Henry” is a “micro western” that pays homage to the great Westerns of the past. At its core, the film is a story about a father and son. The struggles of a father trying his best to raise his son sheltered from the wrongs of his own past.

“Old Henry” is also a story of redemption and forgiveness.
