In the Wild West, a woman had only two choices. She could be a wife or she could be a whore... Josephine Monaghan chose to be a man. The harsh, brutal frontier life of the Western United States has been told from myriad, but mainly male, perspectives. This story dramatically straddles both male and female--The Ballad of Little Jo. 1866. Ruby City. A brutal Gold Rush town where the outcast and ambitious have come to seek their fortunes. Into this mining outpost rides Little Jo Monaghan (Suzy Amis), a mysteriously scarred young man. No one knows that Josephine Monaghan, once a wealthy young woman--but now disowned by her family--has adopted the identity of a man to survive in a place that is lethally hostile to an independent woman. Jo lives in constant fear of discovery of her ruse, which is a criminal act in the 19th century. But even if she could reveal the truth, Little Jo no longer believes that she wants to.
