TRUE GRIT tells the story of Mattie Ross, who is just 14 when the coward Tom Chaney shoots down her father in Forth Smith, Arkansas and robs him of his life, his horse and $150 in cash. Determined to avenge the killing, Mattie enlists the help of Rooster Cogburn, the meanest available U.S. Marshal and pursues the killer into Indian Territory.
