Plot Summary

Plucky widow Elinore Randall (Conchata Ferrell) and her young daughter, Jerrine (Megan Folson), travel to Montana at the dawn of the 20th century so that Elinore can take a job running the household of gruff, undemonstrative rancher Clyde Stewart (Rip Torn). Though the Wild West days have faded into the recent past, life in the mountainous area remains difficult. Still, Elinore and Clyde form a quiet but loving bond in the face of backbreaking labor and unexpected adversity.
