After accidentally killing a man, hot-tempered farmhand Bill flees to Texas with his girlfriend Abby and his younger sister. Bill and Abby pose as brother and sister to avoid strangers’ questions about their past. They find gruelling work on a wheat farmer’s property, and by the end of the harvest, the wealthy farmer has fallen in love with Abby. When he asks Abby to marry him, Bill urges her to accept…but only because the farmer is seriously ill, with only a year to live. Their plan to claim an inheritance backfires when the farmer’s health takes an upswing. Issues of jealousy, anger and loyalty arise as the three deal with their confused emotions and volatile situation.
