Clarista, who calls herself Rista, becomes the son her father never had and ties fast to the ranch her father and grandfather gave her, even if it requires her to kill. Her daughter flees the ranch never to return but her grandson, who lives and works in the ephemeral world of TV believes he can place her in a nursing home and sell the ranch.
