Set in modern day Los Angeles, the story centers around a retired cow puncher and open range cowboy who struggles with Alzheimer's disease. Living in a retirement community near the gangland areas of East L.A., the lead character, Elmer 'Bucky' Chapman, loses the ability to tell the difference between history and the present day.
Convinced that local Mexican 'Banditos' have taken his family from him, Chapman goes on a shooting spree through graffiti tagged neighborhoods with two pearl handled Colt 45's attached to his gunbelt. Eastwood commented, "It's quite a scene really to see the character, well me, driving his battery powered wheelchair down the street, mustering the strength to stand up and stare down the bad guys."
Fans of Eastwood's Western movie collection say that they are excited about seeing the film as soon as it is released. "We're hoping for some great quotable movie lines too", says self proclaimed super-fan Myron Kneepu. Producer, Director, Writer, Actor and Cameraman Eastwood comments, "There will be a few action scene surprises for the fans for sure, and some memorable lines as well."
Squatters on the Eastwood set have already heard a couple of lines including one before a gunfight, "Here's some hot metal to help cook that Fajita", and another when facing two gang members with Uzi's, "Don't let these old six shooters fool ya boys, I got more lead in my pencil than you got in those spray guns".
The working title for the film is "Rio Grande Burrito Sunset", where the advertising trailer would be, "He died with his boots on, covered in guacamole".
