Slim is a the ranch foreman, almost deaf. One morning, he and two cowhands see something come down a distant hill. They grab him, tie him up, and go through his suitcase, finally figuring out that he's a Frenchman. They let him loose, and, along with an Indian who's been tracking him for ten days, celebrate with beer and, at nightfall, an outdoor dinner served by some local gals. A trio of women sing between scenes. The next morning, it's time for breakfast.
Little seen short film by David Lynch is set on a ranch in the turn-of-the-20th Century Wild West, USA is a collision of cultures where a grizzled, hard-of-hearing cowboy, Silm, and his two friends, Dusty and Pete, capture a mysterous, well-dressed Frenchman. Unable to understand each other, the fast-talking, slang-speaking cowboys and the non-English speaking Frenchman make the most of the situation while an Indian, named Broken Feather, joins the group and sets it into a perfect harmony with songs and dancing.
