An affectionate reinvention of the western genre that showcases the Zellner Brothers' (Kumiko the Treasure Hunter) trademark unpredictability, off-kilter sense of humor and unique brand of humanism, , Damsel follows an affluent pioneer Samuel Alabaster (Pattinson) as he ventures across the American Frontier to find and marry the love of his life, Penelope (Wasikowska). As Samuel traverses the Wild West with a drunkard named Parson Henry (David Zellner) and a miniature horse called Butterscotch, their once-simple journey grows treacherous, increasingly blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel.
