A traveling knife salesman is stranded and forced to wait at a rural rest stop, and suddenly finds himself in the middle of a violent hostage situation upon the arrival of two bank robbers who are on the run after a recent heist.

The debut feature from writer/director/editor Francis Galluppi, is a neo-western heist thriller that channels Tarantino and the Coen Brothers, among other greats. Featuring a killer soundtrack of jukebox hits and an incredible ensemble cast including Jim Cummings (THUNDER ROAD), Jocelin Donahue (THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL), Richard Brake (MANDY), and Faizon Love (FRIDAY) THE LAST STOP IN YUMA COUNTY will have you on the edge of your seat.

"Director Francis Galluppi transcends expectations of the Western to create a sun-bleached crime thriller that’ll have you on the edge of your seat."
