Set in the modern day West, this family drama follows the Kilburn family in its struggle to keep their ranch, their way of life and their family all in one piece in the face of a new banker who unexpectedly calls in the loan extension owed by the head of the household, cowboy “Red”. Seeking all possible routes to get he money within 24 hours, Red finally has to connect to his roots. They include a mystical tie to his pioneering departed Grandfather, the Native spirituality which said grandfather embraced upon his arrival a century ago, and Red’s own family, who he finally re-discovers as economic tragedy looms overhead.
