From the Great Plains of the American West to the Rocky Mountains, from the Apache Reservation to the suburbs of Deadwood, bringing up the rear in convoys of pioneers or riding with desperados, Calamity Jane, Legend of the West recounts the true story of the American West and of one of the most unique of all its women, the fascinating Calamity Jane.
In addition to the myth, the film recounts the moving and raw reality of Martha Canary, alias Calamity Jane, whose life spanned the second half of the 19th century. She lived during the era of the last convoys to the Pacific, took part in the Indian Wars, contributed to the building of new towns, lived through epidemics, loneliness and the ravages of alcohol, witnessed the birth of journalism, contributed to writing the story of the Far West, and led the life of an independent woman.
