Wyoming rancher Royal Abbott discovers an unfathomable mystery at the... More edge of his property, setting in motion a catastrophic chain of events.Less
Josh Brolin leads this American small-town suspense series as Royal Abbott, a rancher fighting for his land and family who discovers an unfathomable mystery at the edge of Wyoming's wilderness. Co-stars Lili Taylor and Imogen Poots. More
At the onset of the series, the Abbotts are coping with the disappearance of daughter-in-law Rebecca. They are pushed further to the brink when the Tillersons (the gaudy owners of the neighboring profit-driven ranch) make a play for their land. An untimely death in the community sets off a chain of tension-filled events, and seemingly small-town, soil-bound troubles come to a head with the arrival of a mysterious black void in the Abbotts’ west pasture. Wild revelations unfold as Royal fights to protect his family; through his eyes, we begin to see how time contains secrets held in the past and unsettling mysteries foreshadowed.Less
As well as being arguably the best screen use of Josh Brolin yet, this heady neo-western knows how to keep viewers hooked with an original mystery while still honouring the heritage of the western genre.

A big ol’ gaping mystery is making things weird on the Abbott family ranch: Josh Brolin gets to the bottom of it.
Not only does it honour the western genre, it’s also a work of super trippy science fiction.
