This epic, melodramatic saga of three brothers who fall in love with the same woman, is based on the novella by Jim Harrison, and directed for the silver screen by Edward Zwick.

William Ludlow (Anthony Hopkins), a US Colonel, retires to a remote ranch in Montana, with his friend One Stab (Gordon Tootoosis) after taking part in the Indian Wars. Though they have three sons: Alfred (Aidan Quinn), Tristan (Brad Pitt) and Samuel (Henry Thomas), the colonel's wife (Christina Pickles) decides to leave the farm to the warmer East Coast. One day Samuel returns home from Harvard with his fiancé, Susannah (Julia Ormond), who somehow becomes the love-interest of all 3 brothers. But then before getting married, Sam decides to take part in World War I against the strong objections of his father. With Samuel being the youngest, Tristan and Alfred join him and go to war so they can protect him, and hopefully all three can return safely to their dad and Susannah. But one day Samuel volunteers for a secret reconnaissance mission behind enemy lines, and though Tristan follows as soon as he finds out, he is too late and cradles his brother's body in his final moments then cuts out his heart to be buried at home on his father's ranch...
