The American returns to act in a leading role after The mule (2019) and directing after his most recent film, Richard Jewell (2020). For this film, Eastwood messes with the notion of macho and manhood from the point of view of a rebellious young man in tension with that of a man at the end of his life. Since the concept of macho has defined him throughout his career and he has embodied it himself, in the twilight of his career he suggests a rereading of this term.
