When a group of travelers is stranded on a stagecoach in the middle of Apache territory, they find themselves at the mercy of John Russell, a white man raised by the Apache. But as tensions rise and danger closes in, it becomes clear that the greatest threat may not be the Apache or the harsh wilderness, but the prejudices and mistrust of those aboard the stagecoach.
As John struggles to navigate his own identity and the expectations of those around him, he must decide where his loyalty truly lies...
An Apache or a white man ?
John Russell is portrayed as a man who is emotionally distant and reserved. This is due in part to his upbringing, as he was raised by the Apaches and has a different perspective on the world than most white people. He is also a man who has experienced a great deal of loss and trauma in his life, which may have contributed to his emotional detachment.
"Hombre" was filmed primarily in New Mexico, USA. The film is set in the American Southwest and was shot on location in a number of places in New Mexico, including Albuquerque, Las Vegas, and Santa Fe.
