Billy Ray, self-taught itinerant preacher, former hardworking miner and Saturday night brawler, faces his own temptations in the wilderness of the Old West. Called to be pastor of a divided flock in a frontier town held in the grip of a lawless cattle baron, Billy tries to bring his parishioners together and repair the abandoned little church in the middle of town.
Billy must win his place in a community that doesn't want any preacher changing things. A beautiful, mysterious woman crosses Billy's path, stirring up feelings he's not sure he should have while working in the Lord's pasture. There's a fight brewing, and Billy Ray may have to pick up his guns or put up his fists to save himself, his church, and the town.
