Father Judge (Sam Shepard).

Father Judge

Played by Sam Shepard

Like the other men who come to Dawson City, Father Judge has a burning ambition. But his quest is for the souls of the miners, not the gold in the dirt. In a town filled with greed, envy and a willingness to kill over a few ounces of treasure, Judge knows the risks he is taking. He establishes a church in the middle of Dawson hoping to attract wayward men and women in need of salvation. He gets his wish, but it’s not at all how he imagined.
