For generations, all that distinguished Eagle Pass, Texas, from Piedras Negras, Mexico, was the Rio Grande. But when cartel darkness descends upon these harmonious border towns, a cowboy and lawman face a new reality that threatens their way of life. Special Documentary prize winner at Sundance 2015.

"In his classic novel A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens famously wrote "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." That line sums up the story of Western, the latest film from Bill and Turner Ross, a documentary destined to become a classic itself. Eagle Pass, Texas, and Piedras Negras, Mexico, two towns on opposite sides of the border have shared a harmonious history until the specter of cartel violence threatens to divide them." (Sundance Film Festival)

A low-key but sharply observed work that benefits from real local flavor and a gift for lyric image making.
