This modern Western tells of the friendship between a Texas rancher and his Mexican hired hand. When the latterís body is found in the desert, the rancher discovers the killer, forcing him to disinter the corpse. They then return it to the Mexicanís home village to perform the third burial of the title.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: An effective argument for creation; Stunning scenery. Redemption! Kept me hooked; A classic story of frontiers and the people of the margins; It is well worth a second viewing. I was particularly struck with the magnificent photography; Beautifully filmed, well told, but ultimately pointless.
