Rancher Jim Hanson (Liam Neeson) is happy minding his business and tending his land in the middle of nowhere, but it’s a terrain traversed by drug cartels and human traffickers.

He gets caught up in a hostile situation when he witnesses a young boy, Miguel (Jacob Perez), and his mother, Rosa (Teresa Ruiz), trying to flee drug cartel killers led by the ruthless Mauricio (Juan Pablo Raba). After Rosa is shot, her dying plea to Jim is to take her son safely to her family in Chicago.

Jim, an ex-marine sharpshooter, risks everything to get Miguel to safety, with the cartel in hot pursuit.

The Marksman is an action-thriller directed by Robert Lorenz. Screenplay by Robert Lorenz, Danny Kravitz and Chris Charles.
