This romanticized biopic begins at the beginning, with Wyatt born on a farm with a stern but loving father, a kind but realistic mother, and many brothers. He studies law, takes a wife, buys a house, and settles into an unremarkable life. When his wife dies, he goes off the deep end--ending up in prison. Freed by his father, he flees, and begins a new life. This life will take him to Dodge City, where along with brothers Virgil and Morgan he becomes a lawman. He befriends Doc Holiday, and earns a reputation while accumulating a long list of enemies. When tragedy befalls one of the Earp brothers, Wyatt goes on a hunt to avenge his family's honor and in the process thrusts himself permanently into the folklore of the American West
