William Blake travels into the West in search of a job, but on arriving at his destination, finds that the job has already gone. Things get worse, as he accidentally kills a man and has to go on the run, with an Indian spirit guide called 'Nobody' as his only companion.
Johnny Depp goes west, young man, and enters Jim Jarmusch's impressionistic, darkly deadpan vision of the frontier land in this elegiac, episodic and thoughtful Western. It's a tale that subtly reinterprets the genre and delivers Jarmusch's most accomplished, if not necessarily his most accessible film to date.
