Purgatoire: A Western Story
In his younger days Ben Cameron had been a Texas Ranger and then a town-taming lawman. Riding into the dying mining town of Purgatoire, Cameron stops by The Texas House for a drink, but these days he always ends up blurry-eyed drunk. Amie Courtland works at The Texas House and is very interested in Cameron because she's heard that he was the last person to see her brother alive. When a series of murders begins in Purgatoire, many of the townspeople begin to look upon Cameron as a potential protector.
