A story of love, war and an incessant driving force of a territory that is trying to make itself ready for statehood, regardless of the consequences to local inhabitants. Descendants of early Spanish settlers, the Native Americans, already on the land, are forced to face the invasion of eastern immigrationtaking their land where they once lived peaceably with each other. The Civil War brought southern sympathizers seeking gold from the Rocky Mountains that would aid their cause. The commingling of the different races rent deceit, hatred, terror and also love among these early pioneers, all of whom were seeking a better way of lifebut disregarding the lives of early Spanish and Native Americans.
