Academy Award nominee Margot Robbie leads this thriller as an outlaw on the run, hiding out in the barn of a farm hand (Finn Cole, Peaky Blinders) who desperately needs the bounty money on offer.

Eugene Evans (Cole) is coming of age in the Texas Dust Bowl. Clinging to a dream of escape and reunion with his biological father, Eugene and his family struggle to keep their home amidst a plague of Dust Storms and foreclosures.

In a nearby town, five innocent civilians are killed in the midst of a holdup, and the local authorities are pursuing the fugitive bank robber, Allison Wells (Robbie).

When a $10,000 bounty is placed for the capture of Ms. Wells, Eugene seizes the opportunity in hopes that this monetary reward will prevent the foreclosure of his family farm. However, the task comes easier than anticipated when Eugene finds her hiding out in his family farm. Eugene discovers that Allison Wells story may be a bit different that he had thought, and there may be a better way to save his family than turn her in.

It doesn’t hurt that Allison Wells is a good talker and soft on the eyes, but more than that Eugene begins to fall in love for the first time in his life because they share something else; the dream of escaping their stories.
