In order to escape the domestic violence of Gary, her boyfriend, Jean, a single mother with a daughter named Griff, secretly leave Iowa. Broke, with no place left to go, they arrive at the Wyoming ranch of her father-in-law, Einar, with whom Jean has been estranged since the death of her husband, Einer's son. He's shocked to find he has a granddaughter, but hesitant to welcome them. Jean observes Einar's drinking has driven his wife away and threatened his once successful cattle ranch. She also notes Einar is now the caregiver of his former ranch hand, Mitch, whose attack by a bear left him disfigured, on crutches for life, and dependent on daily morphine injections from Einar for constant pain. Yet Mitch remains positive, while Einar dares himself to drink and indulges in survivor guilt over the mysterious events surrounding Mitch's attack. After Jean gets a job waitressing in town and things have improved trouble reappears.
