A cowboy ex-con takes the first steps down the long road to redemption, but learns that forgiveness is in short supply while attempting to atone for the sins of his past. Eight years ago, Eden Jackson (Jay Pickett) went to prison for manslaughter. While he was locked up, his father passed away and his ex-wife wed his lifelong nemesis. Now, as Eden attempts to dust himself off and stand tall again, he meets a woman who's willing to accept him on his own terms. Shelly is a strong woman facing her own struggle in life, and she's not one to let vicious rumors taint her opinion of a man who's trying to start over. But some of the other folks around town can't seem to let go of the past, and as Eden begins using his musical talents to build a bridge to a better future, they do their best to light it ablaze and watch him burn with it.
