Awarded “Outstanding Performance in a U.S. Feature” at Outfest LGBT Film Festival & “Best Screenplay” at the TriBeCa Film Festival, Cowboys stars Steve Zahn (Treme’, Modern Family, Dallas Buyers Club) as Troy a father who tries to liberate his young transgender son by taking him to Canada but as a frustrated female detective spearheads an investigation she discovers that the child’s family situation is more complicated than she thought.
