"According to the justice of the Wild West, thieves must be punished. But when the sheriff's horse breaks, it's hard to forecast if justice stays justice."

AA: A grim and stylized homage to the post-Western, the anti-Western, the cynical Western. There is a talent of condensation. It is a vicious circle tale: a little kid conquers the outlaw, but in the finale he sits in the jail from which the outlaw broke out in the beginning. Skilful and striking.
