Featuring a career-best performance from Viggo Mortensen and an original soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, this western based on a story by Albert Camus is a gripping tale of morality and friendship. In 1954, at the beginning of the war, schoolteacher and ex French Army solider Daru is caught in the crossfire. When he reluctantly agrees to escort a dissident to the police to face trial for murder, a series of incidents and revelations force the question of where Daru’s loyalties truly lie.
