SYNOPSIS:
Maddy runs a New York interior design firm with her mother, Diane. When a hit and run accident kills her mother, Maddy returns to rural Wyoming for the first time in fifteen years, where she grieves alongside her Mahjong playing grandmother. But when Maddy reconnects with Kate, an old childhood friend, it reawakens memories of their violent, troubled past. As both women tiptoe around their history, they live hard and booze their way through the mourning process along with Jack and Stewart, two local bull riders.

Immersed in cowboy culture, the girls embark on a kamikaze course, running from the past and toward thrills and comfort. But pressure builds and their extended reunion proves that neither control nor chaos can erase their trauma. And if they canít erase it, theyíll either have to make peace with it or set it on fire.
