When his daughter's life is cut brutally short by a stray bullet from a Magnum .357, Martin Tillman (James Coburn) struggles to make sense of the tragedy.

Superb slow paced drama. - American Gun review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
01/04/2010

This is a superb slow paced drama about a retired man named Martin Tillman and his quest to find the owner of the gun which killed his adult daughter. The cleverly told story follows the journey Martin takes as he both tries to track down his missing granddaughter and trace the owner of the gun, from the factory in which it was made through a series of people which owned the gun. And through flashbacks the story reveals the awkward relationship he had with his daughter and the events leading up to her death. This poignant, gentle and slow paced drama had me hooked from start to end. Highly recommended.
