The Banks & Llamas Cattle Co. is a family friendly action movie set in the old west. A notorious con man thinks he can trick an old sheriff into arresting him in exchange for the release of his innocent teenaged son... 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.



Harold Banks is a “rogue outlaw with a conscience”. As he watches his son beginning to follow in his footsteps, Harold wants out of the business before he's ruined his son's future for good. But his good intentions come too late. After his son is arrested, Harold seeks out the most honorable man he knows - a retired sheriff named Juan Llamas. Banks and Llamas journey across the Arizona territory… each man thinking he’s playing the other like a fiddle. 



Banks soon realizes that the sheriff actually has a bigger price on his head than Banks himself does. …Sheriff 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 keeping the old man alive. Along the way, Banks must learn the meaning of “integrity”, and Llamas is just the man to learn it from.
