In the wilds of Montana, 1887, Rebecca Yoder (Naomi Watts, Mulholland Drive) and her son, Benjo, struggle to maintain their sheep ranch in the wake of her husband’s murder a year before. A devout member of the Plain People, a religious sect that rejects the outside world, Rachel’s devotion gives her the strength to move forward, even though her husband’s killers went free. But her faith is suddenly challenged when wounded gunfighter, Johnny Gault (Tim Daly, Wings) stumbles into her life in need of aide. An outsider among Rachel’s kind, Gault represents everything their strict upbringing forbids. He’s an outlaw of notoriety, he’s a sinner, and he believes only in himself. He’s also irresistibly attractive.
