The year is 1870, and a fragmented America still strains to pick up the pieces from a savage Civil War. Martha (Clare Bowen) and her husband Heck (David Call) are living on a homestead on the rural New Mexico frontier, struggling to make ends meet. When a mining company expresses interest in buying their land, Martha and Heck see their ticket to a better life. Their plans are complicated when Martha’s oldest brother Wade (Barlow Jacobs)—believed lost in the war—returns to the family homestead. A defector to the Union Army, Wade discovers Martha is hiding secrets of her own. The siblings are torn between a desire to reconcile with the only family they have left, and their clashing convictions.
