United States, 1952

Jeff is a rodeo rider broken by one-too many steers and over-reaching for the American Dream. He falls in with a young rancher who has the two things Jeff could never grasp: a clod of earth and the love of a good wife. Yet the rodeo circuit’s fast money are also luring the couple.
