State of the Union
The second of three special film reports by Julian Pettifer
When the West was won it was, above all, a family affair. Their struggle across a vast continent was an affirmation of family union - quite simply, they did it together; a victory for family integrity from which the ties emerged still stronger and deeper.
Today those ties are looser, the trail less certain. Millions of Americans are having a hard time plotting a shaky course through the apparent minefield of American Family Life.
As guidebooks they are reading by the millions: How to Make It With Another Person; Creative Intimacy; The Marriage Savers; Parent Effectiveness Training; Till Divorce do us Part; Children the Challenge and so on. Why is the family that once played, prayed and stayed together now fragmenting - what is the State of the Family Union in America today?

At the outbreak of the Mexican Revolution Sergei Cowalski, a mercenary, is hired by mine owner Garcia to protect a silver consignment for Texas. At the mine the workers have taken control under their leader Eufemio, and meanwhile gambler Ricciolo makes his own plans to discover how the silver will cross the border.
