Following a daring escape from a pair of marshals, Tate (Kim Coates, “Black Hawk Down”), a vicious outlaw, murders the wife and child of Matt Austin (Perry), the sheriff who originally caught him and killed his brother. When Austin tracks Tate to a lawless saloon and accidentally kills an innocent man in the shootout, Austin pledges to the dying man that he will return his body to his sister, Amaya (Jaclyn DeSantis, “Windfall”), at their family farm. Once there, he is forced to put his quest for vengeance on hold when he becomes embroiled in a dispute between Amaya and Horn (Howell), a businessman and landowner who has bought the sheriff (Quinn), and is trying to force Amaya to sell him her land by any means necessary. Unbeknownst to Austin, Horn has hired Tate as part of a posse tasked with removing Amaya from her land, leading to an inevitable showdown with lives and livelihoods hanging in the balance.
