Synopsis

Howard Spence has seen better days. When he was younger he was a movie star, mostly in Westerns. At the age of sixty, Howard uses drugs, alcohol and young girls to avoid the painful truth that there are only supporting roles left for him to play. After yet another night of debauchery in his trailer, Howard awakens in disgust to find that he is still alive, but that nobody in the world would have missed him if he had died. Howard gallops away on his movie horse in full cowboy regalia; fleeing from the film and his life. After a short trip to see his mom in Nevada, he heads to Butte, Montana, the location twenty five years earlier where Howard shot the movie that made him a star. There he visits and old flame and reunites with some surprising people from his past.
