Synopsis
No longer the famous country western singer he once was, Mac Sledge finds himself penniless and alone in the small Texas motel run by Rosa Lee. With no other options, Mac takes a job at the motel, and with the support of the kind widow Rosa, mends his ways. The two marry, and Mac becomes close to her son. When Mac is given the chance to make a comeback, he considers leaving them behind, until a meeting with his unhappy daughter makes him decide to never hurt anyone again.
