Synopsis

In 1870, in the aftermath of the Civil War, Martha and her husband Heck are struggling to make ends meet on the rural New Mexico frontier. When a mining company expresses interest in buying their land, they see their ticket to a better life. But their hopeful plans are complicated when Martha's oldest brother Wade, presumed dead during the war, returns to the family homestead after learning of their father's death. A defector to the Union Army, Wade soon discovers that Martha is hiding secrets of her own. As the two siblings become reacquainted, torn between a desire to reconcile with the only family they have left and their clashing convictions, tension and suspicion continue to mount.
