Legendary actor Sam Elliott plays Lee Hayden, a washed-up Western film icon, who today makes a living through voiceovers, while leading a sedentary life accompanied by copious amounts of weed and former co-star turned dealer Nick Offerman.

Upon being struck with a surprise cancer diagnosis, Lee quickly prioritizes, and commits to proving his self-worth through a reprisal of his most iconic role, The Hero, in a sequel to the beloved Western film.

Lee also attempts to mend the relationship with his estranged daughter Krysten Ritter and his ex-wife Katherine Ross, while sparking a new relationship with a stand-up comic played by Laura Prepon.

The Hero was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
