As their parallel journeys unfold, we learn of the man’s childhood as a boy with his father working on a ship where men survived by cannibalizing their crewmates, their internment on an island and their subsequent life in a port town; we watch the stranger as he assumes many guises to shape-shift his way through history in pursuit of the mana pawn in the stranger’s brutal game rewriting the myths of the American West.
Menacing, visceral and lyrical, Beyond the Horizon is an astonishing allegory about the origins of modern Americaa sojourn into the darkest parts of Western lore, which etches out its own unique place in the anti-Western, gothic tradition.
