In the Texas backlands in 1885, twelve-year-old Joey Shipman's
father dies under mysterious circumstances, and the boy is forced
to live with his stepmother and Blair Meacham, a hanger-on at the
farm. After the death of a black farmhand and friend, and another
"accident" that almost takes Joey's life, the boy runs away and
joins forces with his only kin--Beau Shipman, a drunk and a
jailbird. Beau, along with an outlaw, a San Antonio prostitute, and
a sheepman, become Joey's unlikely partners as he is trailed by
their murderous Meacham, in league with Joey's stepmother in their
scheme to inherit the Shipman farm.
