In late nineteenth-century America, a frontier holy man's life is destroyed as a gruesome power consumes the land. Standing between ruin and salvation, the man known only as Preacher (Daniel Van Thomas) must find his purpose in the fight against the mysterious undead. Joined by the town Marshal (Daniel Britt) -- a man with his own set of demons – he faces the risen dead, a ravaged landscape and the evils of the living on a journey to nowhere. Along the way, the men discover which lines they're willing to cross in the name of survival and witness the depths people reach through the power of belief -- for good and ill alike.
