After trashing her neighbour's house in a fit of youthful defiance,
14-year-old Kris (Amber Havard) seems destined to follow in her mother's
footsteps to the state penitentiary. To make amends, she is forced to help
Abe Turner (Rob Morgan), an ex-bull rider scraping by on the Texas rodeo
circuit, with errands at home and at his work. While travelling with Abe,
she discovers a passion for bull riding. Yet, as Kris sets out to learn the
dangerous sport, bad influences back home in her leafy subdivision outside
Houston lure her back into delinquent ways.
