The Ballad of Buster Scruggs The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

A six-part omnibus film weaving together the stories of six individuals in the old West at the end of the Civil War: “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” follows a singing cowboy; “Near Algodones” is about a high-plains drifter whose own fecklessness dogs his attempts at bank robbery and cattle driving; “Meal Ticket” follows an actor and impresario of a traveling show; “All Gold Canyon” is about a prospector who happily finds a gold seam but then unhappily finds an evil encroacher; “The Gal Who Got Rattled” follows two trail bosses on the Oregon Trail and a woman on the wagon train who needs the help of one of them and who might be a marriage prospect for the other; and “The Mortal Remains” follows five very different passengers on a stagecoach of mysterious destination.
