In 1919, on the eve of Prohibition, Bat Masterson, legendary gunfighter and a sports columnist in New York for two decades, is ill and thinking of his youth as a frontier lawman. He is bothered by the legendry that has dogged his footsteps, and on impulse he heads west with his wife, Emma, to revisit his past. Traveling back to Dodge City, through Colorado, and on to Los Angeles, Masterson ponders the legend that he has become and the elusive truth behind the lies. As America shifts into a new era, can one man reclaim his life from dime novelists and make sense of a story whose truths may never be known?
