Ray Dokes (played by Luke Kirby) returns to his hometown after being in jail. Like all people who have been “away” for a time, he discovers the rural landscape he knew when he was much younger has changed. Himself a changed man, and determined to stay out of trouble, Dokes heads to the farm of his old friend Pete Culpepper (American actor, Keiher Carradine), a crusty Texas cowboy, who is a race horse trainer with a string of losses and debts that are growing faster than his corn. Sonny Stanton (Noam Jenkins), gambling addict and spoiled heir to a thoroughbred dynasty, is in the process of buying up an entire concession of farmland to build a casino and golfing resort. It seems the only one brave enough to stand in the way of Sonny is one Etta Parr who just happens to be Ray`s old flame. Etta might be willing to forgive Ray if it wasn’t for her pride and common sense. The situation is a minefield, one Ray is determined to avoid. He hooks up with Chrissie, a talented smartass jockey and tries to steer clear of trouble. But when a ten-million-dollar thoroughbred goes missing from the Stanton Stables, Sonny and his underlings push things too far to force the sale of the community`s remaining farms. Ray reacts by coming up with a plan to stop Sonny in his tracks and right a few wrongs in the process.
