Set at the end of the 19th Century, Slow West is an American western filtered through the eyes of European filmmaking. The story centers on 17-year-old Jay Cavendish who has travelled from Scotland to Colorado to be reunited with the woman with whom he is infatuated. He is quickly confronted by the dangers of the frontier and so teams up with a mysterious traveller named Silas, who agrees to protect him for cash. Jay’s journey is fraught with danger, double-crossing, and violence as he comes to realize that America is not easy on the innocent.
