Overview

Selmer Burks mourns the loss of his only child and plots murder on the ride home from Oklahoma City. A roadside turnout proves his redemption and he is saved from disaster by the piecing cry of his newborn bastard grandson. He goes on to raise the child, whom he learns to love and protect with fierce loyalty. Sheriff Burks continues to rule his domain with a hard, gnarled fist. As Thomas Burks grows, he returns his grandpa's love and loyalty until he hears the truth surrounding his birth. He forgives and their pact is renewed and stronger than before. But Thomas is becoming a man and has developed a crush on Sara Tassel, who now works at the township brothel. After killing a railroad bum, Burks retreats to the brothel to get drunk, but Sara Tassel has other plans; plans she will see through because she is in love with Selmer Burks. The rule of the Sheriff of Sundowner County begins to unravel as his illicit affair with his best friend's daughter increases in intensity . After killing Junior Porter in self-defense, Burks comes clean with Tom, and though hurt, the boy remains loyal to his grandpa until the bloody end.
