BLEEDING, KANSAS by Daniel Lafrentz, Chris Grillot, & Ezra Herz

Logline: A pair of mismatched U.S. Marshals – a reformed outlaw and a free man of color – is sent to the Kansas frontier to uncover the fate of a fellow Marshal gone missing while escorting a member of a notorious gang to his hanging. But when the Marshals find the condemned man alone and barely alive, the obvious answers don’t hold water and all the evidence points to something much darker and more sinister.
