Retired radio DJ, Rex Page (Ernest Borgnine), always dreamed of being a Western movie cowboy -- After suffering a back injury, Rex finds himself recovering at Rancho Park nursing home, a facility held in the villainous grip of local businessman Mr. Walker (Barry Corbin) and his evil henchman, Dr. Dominguez (Tony Plana). At first, Rex is helpless in this lawless world, but when the Latino staff realize that as a DJ, he once met their icon, Vicente Fernández, Rex becomes the local celebrity. And like the cowboy of his dreams, Rex discovers the love and respect of his family and the staff when he faces down the tyrannical owners of Rancho Park in this homage to the Spaghetti Westerns of yore.
