‘Hondo’ Movie Synopsis
Exhausted, on foot, and with his trusted dog in tow, a Cavalry dispatch rider named Hondo Lane arrives at Angie Lowe’s small ranch; nested deep into war-brewing Apache territory. Isolated in their homestead, Angie lies about her husband, and defiantly ignores Hondo’s advice to flee to safety. She instead decides to make a stand with her young son against chief Vittorio’s menacing hordes of Apaches. As the drums of war begin to beat, Hondo becomes an unexpected protector of the land, and a true father figure for the boy.
