In 1915 Minnesota, Monte Becket has lost his sense of purpose. His only success long behind him, Monte lives simply with his loving wife and whip smart son. But when he befriends outlaw Glendon Hale, a new world of opportunity presents itself. Glendon has spent years in obscurity, but the guilt he harbors for abandoning his wife, Blue, over two decades ago, has finally lured him from hiding. As the modern age marches swiftly forward, Glendon aims to travel back to his past, heading to California to seek Blue's forgiveness. Beguiled and inspired, Monte finds himself leaving behind his own family to embark for the unruly West with his fugitive guide - a journey that will test the depth of his loyalties, the inviolability of his morals, and the strength of his resolve. As they flee from the relentless Charles Siringo, an ex-Pinkerton who's been hunting Glendon for years, Monte falls ever further from his family and the law. With its smooth mix of romanticism and gritty reality, So Brave, Young, and Handsome recalls the Old West's greatest cowboy stories.
But it is also about an ordinary man's determination as he risks everything in order to understand what it's all worth, and follows an unlikely dream in the hope it will lead him back.
