Every boom has its bust.
Nestled high in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Bodie was one of the richest mining camps of the Californian Gold Rush. After years of prosperity, good fortune and greed, the streams are about to run dry. Ghost Town follows the inhabitants of Bodie fighting to survive as the mines shut down, jealousies spark and a final showdown looms.
With breathtaking imagery and virtuosic live music, Ghost Town continues Limbik's search into the stories buried in epic landscapes. A western for our times, the company explores the lengths we go to avoid the ghosts of our past and how we cope when the facts get in the way of the legend.
