In this thrilling Western, a young boy, Rio, is forced to go on the run across the American Southwest in a desperate attempt to save himself and his sister from his villainous uncle.
Along the way he encounters infamous outlaw Billy the Kid who’s on the run from Sheriff Pat Garrett. Finding himself increasingly entwined in the lives of these two legendary figures, Rio witnesses their cat-and-mouse game play out, during the final year of Billy the Kid’s life. Ultimately Rio is forced to decide exactly what type of man he wants to be, the outlaw or the man of valour, and will use this self-realisation in a final act to save his family.
Based on one the Old West’s most notorious tales, The Kid is an action-packed Western boasting powerful performances, blood-soaked shoot-outs and gripping drama.
