After her mother's death, Lisa (Natasha Henstridge) returns to her childhood home. It has been 20 years since her departure, and her father, Clay (Lawrence Dane), and brother, Jim (Harry Hamlin), own a financially shaky cattle farm. Jim has purchased a flock of sheep, but is without a herding dog. While Lisa is staying with her family, she goes to a shelter, where she finds Lucky, an abandoned dog. Lucky may be just what the farm, and the family, need to get back on their feet.
