After her father is murdered, 14-year-old Mattie Ross sets out to capture the killer with the help of two lawmen - the ageing, alcoholic marshall Rooster Cogburn and Texas Ranger La Boeuf. Determined to accompany them on their quest, Mattie wonders whether Cogburn, with his loose morals, has the required 'true grit' for the job. When Chaney's trail heads into Indian territory, Mattie, stubborn to the last, insists on joining the pair in their search, which soon finds them in a raft of dangerous adventures that will test them to the core.
