In 1892, a group of mostly black infantrymen desert the Spanish-American War. Disillusioned and disheartened by the betrayal of their white commander, Colonel Graham (Billy Zane, Titanic) the men return to their hometown of Freemanville to find it besieged by a racist war. Lead by Jessie Lee (Mario Van Peebles, Ali) the posse set out to revolutionise the west, to seek freedom and respect in a heartless and unforgiving world. Mario Van Peebles leads an impressive field of talent into the frontier in a dynamic western adventure that spins the genre in a new and exciting direction. Featuring Pam Grier (Jackie Brown), Isaac Hayes (Escape From New York), Stephen Baldwin, Tone Loc, Nipsey Russell, Blair Underwood, Big Daddy Kane and Aaron Neville, Posseis filled with gun-blazing, fist-pounding action and bounds along at break-neck speed to tell a tale of betrayed men, bound by honour and driven by justice.
