Centuries in the future, the way of life as we know it is gone. After nations collapsed, a feudal system came into power. The territories, called the Badlands, were divided between seven Barons, each with an army of protectors: assassins called Clippers.
The most powerful baron, Baron Quinn (Martin Csokas), is protected by his head Clipper, Sunny (Daniel Wu), who rose in the ranks to be his most trusted assassin, but secretly dreams of a normal life beyond the Badlands, out from under the Baron's control.
When rumors rise among other Barons that Quinn is growing vulnerable, he is soon challenged for his land. The newest Baron, The Widow (Emily Beecham), is out to bring him down, with the help of her 'Butterflies.'
While attempting to recover a transport stolen by the Nomads, Sunny rescues a teenage boy, M.K. (Aramis Knight), who he trains as his Colt. He soon discovers that M.K. is hiding a dark power that may be the key to escaping his life in the Badlands.
