Headstrong young Maggie runs the general store in a small Appalachian town, no thanks to her moonshining father. When Clayton, a handsome drifter, shows up and confesses to a violent crime, the town takes pity on him – and Maggie finds herself torn between the exciting stranger and her timid, religious fiancée Luther. When a mysterious lawman arrives looking for Clayton, all heck breaks loose."
