Atticus Cody (James Coburn) is a widow father living in a ranch like a cowboy. In Christmas, his son Scott Cody (Paul Kersey), who lives in Mexico, pays him a visit and they spend the Christmas night together with the family of his other son. Then, through flashbacks, we become aware that Scott killed his mother in a car accident and neither Atticus nor Scott has overcome the loss of their beloved wife and mother. There is a trauma in the breast of their family. Scott returns to Mexico and a few days later Atticus is informed that Scott committed suicide. Atticus moves to Mexico and there he meets Renata (Lisa Zane), the former girlfriend of Scott. He realizes that a mystery evolves the death of Scott. With a very tight screenplay, this movie is indeed a good film. It becomes slow, in a familiar drama, and ends in a very credible mystery. The screenplay is excellent, there is a good direction and the cast is sharp. But the entire plot is actually supported by the great performance of James Coburn. I believe the viewer will not be disappointed with this slow, but very easy-to-believe story. My vote is seven.
Atticus goes to Mexico to unravel the reason behind his his son's suicide. As he tries to overcome his own feelings over his son's death, Atticus discovers it might not be a suicide at all and tries to uncover the mystery.
