A dreamlike portrait in the vein of Lucky meets Blaze. Buck is a dying, pain-killer-addicted relic from Austin, Texas’ “Cosmic Cowboy” music scene… and he is on his literal last leg. Told through his colorfully fragmented and musical point of view, his swan song unfolds as a visual ballad, capturing the humor and melancholy of a bad man’s final days. With his faithful dog Chester at his side, he gets one last goodbye to the friends and family who all wish they could have forgotten him already.
