Trouble is looming for Steve Blaine...
When three outlaws arrive at the family ranch he runs with his father, Heck, all manner of hell breaks loose.
The Blaines settled legally on the land years ago, but their neighbour - Zeke Coppard - always regarded it as his own.
Determined to regain the use of the range by whatever means necessary, Coppard takes no prisoners in his efforts to stake his claim on the land.
But that's not all.
Tensions mount when a secret Heck has been keeping for over twenty years finally comes to the surface, threatening to destroy everything that Steve holds dear.
Steve soon realises that he has some life changing decisions to make and not a lot of time in which to make them.
Battling against devious ranchers and ruthless outlaws, can father and son leave the past behind them and work towards saving their future?
But when the guns start firing, will there even be a future left to fight for?
