1879 Cottonwood Colorado - The worst drought of the century has beaten the life out of this dying frontier cattle country. While most folks have moved on, a few rugged ranchers gather to watch a mysterious surry pull into town.



A beautiful foreign woman, Juliana (Vanusa Sppindler - "Discretion Assured", "1999"), has traveled all the way from Brazil to marry TOM FENDER, a man she barely knows...


A local rancher, JOHN GOWER (Grainger Hines - "The Alamo: 13 Days To Glory", "War and Remembrance"), rides by an overturned wagon. John finds his neighbor, Tom Fender, crushed to death under the wreckage and discovers a bloodied new bride (Juliana) lying unconscious in a ditch. John reluctantly takes in this strange woman to tend to her wounds...


Gower's daughter, JD (Sabrina Chateau - "Tarzan and the Lion Girl"), is fascinated by this seductive stranger, who can't recall the circumstances that led to the wagon accident and death of her husband. Juliana presents womanhood to JD, a sheltered young girl who has known only ranch life since her mother died during childbirth...

Across the valley, at the Howling ranch, the powerful COLONEL HOWLING (Ted Markland - "Another 48 Hours", "How The West Was Won",), strikes a business deal with a peculiar little man named ZIMMER (Emilio Borelli - "Golden Gate", "Noise of War").


A geologist from the big city, Zimmer offers new "scientific methods" to find gold in this barren cattle land. The Colonel unleashes a plot to buy up all the property he can get his hands on. family home video by Morningstar Entertainment
