1870s America. When settler Jon (Mads Mikkelsen) kills his family’s murderer, he unleashes the fury of notorious gang leader Delarue (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Betrayed by his corrupt and cowardly community, the peaceful pioneer must turn vengeful hunter, slay the outlaws, and cleanse the town’s black heart.

""The Salvation" is not a film driven by dialogue, but an action led story, which has a strong visual impact. The characters’ actions are strengthened by the dynamic moving camera, which will enhance the rhythm of the drama. Storms, rain, dust, black smoke and drought haunt these impressive landscapes all to enhance the power of the cinematic experience. Faces are also a big part of the visualisation of the film. Strong faces carved in granite. We are talking rugged, weathered men and beautiful, tough women." - Kristian Levring, director
