Synopsis: A man is shot and quickly buried in the high desert of west Texas. The body is found and reburied in Van Horn's town cemetery. Pete Perkins, a local ranch foreman, kidnaps a Border Patrolman and forces him to disinter the body. With his captive in tow and the body tied to a mule, Pete undertakes a dangerous and quixotic journey into Mexico.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

In terms of sound and all, it was a very similar approach (to 3:10 to Yuma), but with a very different result. There it was sort of the Tex-Mex landscape, and you know, I was more concerned with sounds. I guess, since it took place with traveling with Tommy Lee Jones and the other character, I forget his name, they were traveling across the desert, I was thinking it'd be much more of an indigenous native sound. For instance, the guy I had been working with ever since 1997, Buck Sanders who does all the electronics and has produced stuff with me... we took sounds like the plucking of cactus thorns and made loops out of that to have as a background. So it was a similar approach but very different sounds.
