Bangtail Poster V2 copy.jpg

Bangtail: Baddest. Cowboy. Texas. These are just a few words to describe the Baddest Cowboy in Texas. He roots n’ toots n’ rides from the highest mountain to the booziest saloon. That’s his God-given purpose. But what happens when a Badder Cowboy-er Texas-er (AKA his nemesis) rides into town and steals his title?


Directionless and in search of a new identity, he becomes an accountant. Specifically, the baddest (best) accountant at an average mid-sized animal feed manufacturer in rural Minnesota. But when a rival animal feed company threatens liquidation, which would render Alan unemployed and again without direction, he must reconcile his past and present to save the firm.


BANGTAIL shows a man caught between two identities: a Clint Eastwood cowboy and a middle-America 9-5er. As our hero moves between the two worlds, exploring the shifting expectations of and for himself, he seeks to connect with and find his true purpose.
