Tall TaleA young boy draws on the inspiration of legendary western characters to find the strength to fight an evil land baron in the old west who wants to steal his family’s farm and destroy their idyllic community. When Daniel Hackett sees his father Jonas gravely wounded by the villainous Stiles, his first urge is for his family to flee the danger, and give up their life on a farm which Daniel has come to despise anyway.
