The marshal of Redemption, Jeff Warrinder, was a happy man, until a bank raid robbed him of his wife and unborn child. A year later, he's a drunken no-hoper. When Cassie Hanson saves his neck during a jail break, Jeff is forced to work off the debt on her ranch and gets tangled up in her feud with Bull Krantz and his son. The new marshal, once Jeff's deputy, is in deep trouble, while the gang of outlaws are after Jeff's blood. As if all that's not enough, if he's ever to make the ride back to Redemption Jeff must overcome his own demon: the one that comes in a whiskey bottle.
