Drama based on the novel by Mark Spragg. Einar Gilkyson (Robert Redford) was a successful rancher until he developed a serious drinking problem. Now on the wagon, Einar looks after what's left of his spread with his friend Mitch (Morgan Freeman), a one-time cowhand who never fully recovered after being mauled by a bear. Einar's son Griffin died in a car crash while Griffin's wife, Jean (Jennifer Lopez), was driving and Einar never forgave Jean for the death. When Jean arrives on his doorstep eleven years later, accompanied by a granddaughter he has never met, he reluctantly allows them to stay. But old trouble makes its way back to town in two ways - Jean's violent boyfriend Gary (Damien Lewis) tracks her down and wants to make her pay for leaving him, while the bear who attacked Mitch comes down from the mountains looking for new prey.
