Citizens of small-town Folbee, Nebraska find themselves under the thumb of mega-entrepreneur Richard Kilroy; a man of money who appeared one day and seemed to have Folbee in his pocket the next. Among the unhappy residents are single mother Chelsie Davenport and her six year old daughter Rosie, The remnants of the McCormick family, and Dirk Korner’s fresh widow. Then one day, miracle of miracles: The McKormick’s eldest and sole remaining son makes an unexpected return from his 15 year Army tenure. The McCormick’s house is slowly falling apart while Chelsie fights off the unwanted attentions of Sherriff Brock Carter and Widow Korner becomes more and more suspicious that her husband was not attacked by wild wolves. Chris McCormick, the once-town-hero, is aghast to find his home in such a state of decay, intrigued by the beautiful if not off-putting Chelsie Davenport, and determined to restore Folbee to its former glory. But will the fight be worth the cost, and who will pay the gravedigger?
