The Old West comes alive in this epic tale of lawless desperadoes and a man seeking redemption through the love of a good woman. Things become increasingly dangerous for Bill Barton as his cattle rustling buddies in Missouri, including Frank and Jesse James, turn to the ways of gunslinging outlaws. Living a double life as a southerner named Leroy Thompson, Bill works to guard his real identity when south of the Mason-Dixon Line. He knows the promise of his new life would come to a violent end if his Confederate partners ever found out he had been a Union spy during the war. 
While on a cattle rustling foray into Missouri, Bill’s life becomes even more complicated when he accidentally runs into the love of his life, Cole Younger’s sweetheart, Lucy Breeden.
