Nobody knows his name. He just a bum who wants to start a new life. Unfortunately, his wish seems difficult to be realized even though he is a new guy in that city.
The first time arrived in the town, the hobo (Rutger Hauer) just want to start a peaceful life. But what he sees around him is not a picture of a peaceful life. Cruelty is a the daily meal in town. The criminals in power and the weak increasingly oppressed.
The hobo could not start a new life while in surrounding be chaos. There was no other choice. He should help. The weak must be defended! The criminals must be destroyed! Did not take long until the name of the hobo became famous all over town. They called Hobo with a Shotgun!
