All three short film installments in the Idaho Joe Trilogy are spoofs of "that other fedora wearing, whip-cracking adventurer."

Being director David Tedesco's first actual narrative film at the age of 15, the first Idaho Joe adventure chronicles our hero, Idaho Joe (Wayne Madsen) in his attempt to escape the tragedy of being grounded in order to see his girlfriend, Marion.

The second short in the series introduces Joe's nemesis, Jack, who kidnaps Marion in order to extract his revenge.

The final installment follows Joe as he prepares for his future away from home, his plans for a life with Marion... and hair-raising escapes from a mysterious pursuer intent on pushing Joe to his farthest limits.
