In 1880, a group of strangers boards the east-bound stagecoach from Tonto, Arizona Territory to Lordsburg, New Mexico Territory. The travellers seem ordinary, but many have secrets that they are running from. Among them are Dallas, a prostitute who is being driven out of town; an alcoholic doctor, Doc Boone; pregnant Lucy Mallory who is meeting her cavalry officer husband; and whiskey salesman Samuel Peacock. As the stage sets out, U.S. Cavalry Lieutenant Blanchard announces that Geronimo and his Apaches are on the warpath; his small troop will provide an escort to Dry Fork.

  • Writing

    There are some character name changes, but the plot is roughly based on that of the original film:

  • The Doc character is Doc Boone M.D. in the original, but he is Doc Holliday, a dentist in the remake.
  • In the original, Peacock, the whiskey salesman, travels all the way to Lordsburg, but here he leaves the coach at the first stop.
  • Hatfield, the gambler, survives, whereas he is killed in the original.
  • Gatewood the banker, meanwhile survives in the original but is killed here.
  • Ringo deals with Luke Plummer alone in the original, but in the remake he is assisted by the Marshal, Hatfield and Doc.
  • Ringo is still technically a jail-breaking criminal when the Marshal allows him to escape in the original, but his innocence has been proved when Luke Plummer asks the Marshal "How'd they find out he didn't do it?" in the remake.
