Ed Harris stars in this astonishing story of William Walker, a real-life American soldier of fortune, whose Latin American escapades in the mid-1800’s continue to have ripple effects in U.S. policy even to this day.

Alex Cox directs an all-star supporting cast, featuring Peter Boyle and Oscar® winning Marlee Maitlin. He continually jars the audience with his anachronistic humour by populating the world of 1855 with computers, cigarette machines and helicopters in this bold satire.

The story follows an idealistic Walker, a doctor, lawyer and journalist who leads a bloody and violent invasion of Nicaragua at the request of robber baron Cornelius Vanderbilt (Boyle). In short order Walker declares himself president of the country in the belief that America has a moral right to “protect our neighbours from oppression”.
