David Stumpf’s “Cowboyland”

According to the justice of the Wild West, thieves must be punished. But when the sheriff’s horse breaks, and there is no-one to oversee justice, it’s hard to forecast if justice stays justice.

Cowboyland is short animated film directed by David Stumpf, made as bachelor film at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava.
