Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army captain (Bale), who agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back to tribal lands.

Making the harrowing and perilous journey from an isolated Army outpost in New Mexico to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Pike) whose family was murdered on the plains.
