After trashing her neighbor's house in a fit of youthful defiance, 14-year-old Kris seems destined to follow in her mother's footsteps to the state penitentiary. To make amends, she is forced to help Abe Turner, an ex-bull rider scraping by on the Texas rodeo circuit, with errands at home and at his work. While traveling with Abe, she discovers a passion for bull riding. Yet, as Kris sets out to learn the dangerous sport, bad influences back home in her leafy subdivision outside Houston lure her back into delinquent ways. Abe, meanwhile, struggles with the aches and pains of growing older and aging out of the only life he has ever known in the rarely glimpsed world of backyard rodeos. This is the story of two disparate souls at a crossroads who forge an unexpected connection, helping each other see new possibilities and hope for the future.
