The film is set against the sweltering beauty of the Texas countryside, at a ranch estate of a well-to-do family. The return of Letty (Karen Sillas), a successful artist living in New York, upsets the facade of balance in her family. Letty, a strong-willed, free spirited woman, had long before left her sister behind, ignoring her parents expectations. Sister Kay (Heidi Swedberg) stayed behind, married the ranch foreman and gave up her dream of becoming a singer. With her marriage on the rocks, it is only a matter of time before her jealousy and unhappiness brings the family to a boil, exposing secrets that cross generations and leave no one unaffected.
