EL PASO

by Ian Watson

 

In a quiet, old-fashioned northern pub, an old-fashioned northern man finds himself torn between his past and the new definition of manhood in these days of hard-faced women and cocky kids. Where respect and honour seem to be dirty words and men like him are dinosaurs.

Set against the music of the cowboy ballad, ‘El Paso’ and mirroring the story of that song, but with a different outcome, we see how riding off into the sunset just isn’t enough these days, and being a man means doing the right thing.
