When an aging rodeo rider returns home to Arizona for a Fourth-of-July celebration, he walks into a family situation he doesn't expect. Although his goal is to reconcile with his family, he suddenly finds everything crumbling. His parents are breaking up, and his younger brother is dividing up the family property and selling it in parcels for some quick cash. Determined to try and pick up the pieces, he decides to compete at the town's Independence Day rodeo by riding a feisty bull that has injured him before. This time, his motivation is different. He's doing it for family.
