Plot Synopsis

Based on the life of famous American outlaw Billy the Kid (aka William H. Bonney), BILLY THE KID is an eight-episode western adventure series that explores his life -- from his humble Irish roots, to his early days as a cowboy and gunslinger in the American frontier, to his pivotal role in the Lincoln County War and beyond. The story opens in 1871, as 12-year-old Billy McCarty and his immigrant Irish family have to leave New York and travel west to seek new opportunities...but the journey proves fatal for some. Kathleen and her sons Billy and Joe travel on to Santa Fe, where life is hard...but she meets and marries a man who might change everything for the better -- only to find that he makes it a lot worse. Antrim, Kathleen and the two boys relocate to Silver City, trying to start a new life, but all their dreams are shattered -- and Billy loses everything.
