Due to the recent death of her husband Ilene Connors is forced to raise her son, Jackson, alone. This and the emotional toll of tragically losing his father have caused Jackson to become very angry at the world, even lashing out at friends and family. A final straw is broken when Jackson is expelled from school for cutting class. Ilene has no other choice, but to send Jackson to live with her father, Wyatt, a grandparent Jackson has never met.

After a rough beginning, granddad and grandson begin to bond. Wyatt, a widower himself, uses the opportunity to minister to Jackson. In an attempt to make up for lost time, the two men head out on a hunting trip. A tragic situation forces Jackson to not only evaluate his own life, but to also make some challenging decisions…
