For four generations, the McTeague family has searched for a chest full of diamonds. After her parents disappear, Trina (Minnie Driver), who is the fifth generation, takes over the search in the lonely northern Mexican desert. Trina believes she can find them because she respects the desert and has learned from it since she was a child. Frank Norris (Stuart Wilson) is a family friend helps Trina with her search and to stay in touch with the world outside the desert. But after a fight that ends with Trina disowning Frank, Trina is left alone in the desert with only what can fit in her truck and a desire to prove that she is strong enough and has the will to find the lost diamonds.

A couple days later, two convicts, who have escaped from a local jail, happen upon the diamonds by pure luck and plan to take them across the border with them into Texas. They find Trina and convince her to drive them out of the desert. While filling up their water containers, Trina catches a glimpse of the chest she’s been searching for and quickly realizes what its contents are. She puts on her poker face and continues to do her job trying not to reveal to the convicts that she knows what they are hiding. Trina then tries to rid herself of the escapees. She finds that is harder than she thought it would be.

So, she sneaks around to ascertain the diamonds anyway she cans, including befriending one of her newfound acquaintances. She tries winning over one of the convicts who is simpler than his cruel cousin. Meanwhile, Frank sets out to find and protect Trina not just from the escaped convicts but also from herself.
