Film synopsis: Throughout history there have been many stories of legendary men and events from the old west.
Most are well known, but there are a few that have fallen through the cracks of time.
Legend speaks of such events that folks say are just a myth or absolute doo doo.
Believers say the one responsible is a man who could not be killed, and no woman could satisfy his lustful appetite.
