Raul de Anda, Jr.'s Spanish-language, Mexican-produced western Terra de Violencia observes the cataclysm that erupts when a railroad is constructed and run through the heart of a small town. This infuriates the local bluebloods, who firmly believe that the track will stand in the way of their economic interests. In retaliation, they enlist a group of bellicose, violence-happy gunmen to prevent the construction crew from continuing its work - little foreseeing the tragedy, death and horror that will result.
