River guide Madeline Kruse has always preferred the nomadic life over a settled home. On the run from the long-standing pain of a missing father and critically ill mother, Madeline lets her wandering take her to a corner of the West time has passed over. In the tiny town of Junction, she runs headlong into a community with challenges of its own. Through alfalfa farmer Chris Sorensen and a drama unfolding deep in the Utah backcountry, Madeline is drawn in deeper than she could have imagined by people and a place no longer safe from the pressure and threat of change.
