Logline: 
Rose Pinn must endure racial prejudice, outflank her five bounty hunting brothers, and resist a forbidden attraction to gunslinger George Bittercreek Newcomb, if she is going to make anything of her life.
Synopsis/Details: 

Bill Pinn is the eldest of 5 black-American, bounty hunting brothers (based on real life western bounty hunters, the Dunns). He promised his mama he would look after the family as she passed. He is tough, decisive and quick with a gun. Bill is seconded by brother George- quiet and deadly, with an unquestioning loyalty to Bill, and a soft spot for baby sister Rose. Middle brother Dal is the family intellectual, an educated man with refined tastes, but who is also skilled with firearms, and is unapologetically, a Pinn. Family clowns Bee and Cal make up the rest of the family, and are usually found together, causing trouble.

The story opens as Bill rides hard to get to his mama, before she dies. He arrives moments before her death promising her that he will take care of the family, especially baby sister, Rose. After her funeral, the boys, who have been raising money by bounty hunting and cattle rustling, decide to turn the family home into a roadhouse for Blacks, Asians, Native Americans, and anyone else who can’t find lodging in town. Dal manages, Rose cooks and cleans with the help of Bee and Dal. Bill and George continue to bounty hunt to keep the business afloat until it can stand on its own.

Rose becomes bored with the business and takes un unhealthy interest in frequent visitor (and real life western outlaw) George Bittercreek Newcomb. She eventually runs away with him and Bill goes after them. Bill finds them with the Doolin gang (consisting of Newcomb, Arkansas Tom Jones, Bill Doolin, Charley Pierce, Oliver "Ol" Yantis, Cattle Annie and Little Britches) who have just botched a bank robbery and are pinned down by US Marshals. Yantis is killed, Arkansas Tom is captured, Newcomb, Pierce and Doolin escape.

Bill takes Rose home and horse whips her. The boys keep a tight eye on her, but the business is demanding and she eventually runs off again to find Newcomb. What she finds is Pierce and Newcomb involved with Annie and Britches. Disgusted, she returns home and she doesn’t protest when Newcomb and Pierce shockingly arrive at the roadhouse to spend the night (Newcomb hoping to make up with Rose) and Bill instantly kills them both. Bill them leads the Federal Marshal to Doolin’s hiding place, killing Doolin and collecting the bounty.

Everything seems to be straightening out when Bill realizes he has to manage a confrontation with a local sheriff who has been both friend and antagonist to Bill. Rose begs him not to go, fearing Bill’s temper and fearing for his life.

The Writer: Deen Gill

Screenwriter, author, all around good guy. Passionate about strong plotting and characterization. I see way too many character violations for the sake of moving the plot along. If the writing is strong and thoughtful, it will move the reader/viewer along, engaging them, pulling them in, and making them fans. My work has been read and vetted by B-movie film legend Bill Rebane, actor Joseph C. Phillips, producer Jeff Faehnle, and David Crowther of Trousers, Inc. https://www.stage32.com/profile/511719/about Go to bio
