SYNOPSIS

1851 Oregon, USA. Charlie and Eli Sisters are brothers and assassins-for-hire who long ago lost any sense of right and wrong. Their latest commission from the mysterious Commodore sees them hunting down a prospector named Hermann Warm who has invented a chemical formula that reveals the location of gold in riverbeds. They are assisted in their quest by bounty hunter John Morris who has already befriended Warm with a view to delivering him to the brothers. As the brothers close in on their prey, what should be a straightforward hit takes an unexpected turn when Warm and Morris partner up and take off to California.
