Colt Ballard is a professional team roper with the talent to go all the way, but the loss of his parents from a car accident during his childhood has him fighting an emotional obstacle that keeps him from reaching the pinnacle of success. After being pushed out by the PRCA, Colt realizes his dilemma and accepts the advice of his late father's friend to take a summer job helping out at a rodeo camp in New Mexico.
Though resistant to any likelihood of positive change, Colt agrees to the challenges of camp owner Casey McIntire. He ventures cautiously into the hearts and minds of those he's there to help, realizing they just might be helping him more.
