Rodeo star Mike Milo retired from the ring after breaking his back and now trains “a string of second-rate horses” for rancher Howard Polk. Howard stood by Mike in his darkest hours and he calls in a favour, asking Mike to travel to Mexico to escort his estranged 13-year-old son Rafael back to Texas. The rancher neglects to mention that two other men have tried and failed to chaperone the lad across the border or that ex-wife Leta is a venomous harpy.
