Synopsis/Details: 

The Banks & Llamas Cattle Co. is an action/thriller set in the old west. A notorious con man named Harold Banks is trying to get out of the “business” when his is teenage son (Timmy) is arrested for Banks’s own past crimes.

Banks thinks he can trick an old sheriff named Juan Llamas into orchestrating his arrest in exchange for Timmy’s release (which of course, he intends to con his way out of)... but he's insulted to realize that he isn't quite as “wanted” as he'd thought he was. The old sheriff would rather spend his week chasing a lost herd of cattle - so our con man turns cowboy in his attempt to drive the sheriff home with the cattle in time to save his son.

It isn’t long before Banks realizes that Sheriff Llamas actually has a bigger price on his head than Banks himself does. …Llamas has recently butted heads with a powerful railroad baron. Therefore, a shady hired gun named Ben Roja is out to kill him, and Banks spends most of his journey just keeping the old man alive.

Harold Banks is a rogue outlaw with a conscience. As he watches his son beginning to follow in his footsteps, Banks wants to change his lifestyle before he's ruined his son's future for good. But no matter what Banks does, he just can’t seem to “will” his way into becoming a good person. What’s more frustrating - Sheriff Llamas makes it look easy. The more Banks watches Llamas live a committed life, the more convinced he is that he’ll never measure up. Banks must learn to change his ways (from the inside out), and Llamas is just the man to learn it from.
