Plot Summary[edit]

A young farmer and a bible-quoting runaway slave team up to track down the legendary Confederate guerrilla William Quantrill. Along the way they run into a legendary gunfighter, J.R. Swackhammer, who teaches the young farmer how to shoot and gives him a special gun that shoots seven rounds, the seventh which he must use to fight evil.
