Franklin figures Tory for a drifter, but he's lonely after ten years of living in the backcountry alone, and his "girl" in Chicago has mysteriously stopped writing, so he hires Tory on as his ranch hand. Franklin and Tory grow closer while defending the land from outlaws who want the untapped gold in Franklin's creek, but then Franklin learns Tory's true identity and banishes Tory from his sight. Will their lives be forever tattered, or will Torsten-overhearing a desperate last-ditch scheme to snatch Franklin's gold-be able to save Moonlight Gulch and his final shot at love?
