Synopsis

Retired radio DJ, Rex Page, always dreamed of being a Western movie cowboy -- After suffering a back injury, Rex finds himself recovering at Rancho Park nursing home, a facility held in the villainous grip of local businessman Mr. Walker and his evil henchman, Dr. Dominguez. At first, Rex is helpless in this lawless world, but when the Latino staff realizes that Rex once met their icon, Vicente Fernandez, Rex becomes a local celebrity. And like the cowboys from his dreams, Rex discovers the love and respect of his family and the staff when he faces down the tyrannical owners of Rancho Park this homage to the Spaghetti Westerns of yore. Starring Academy Award Winner Ernest Borgnine in a magical and triumphant, final performance.
