Still in shock from his only son's death a decade ago, Einar Gilkyson (Robert Redford), a tough-skinned, retired rancher has let his ranch fall into ruin along with his marriage. Now, Einar spends his days caring only for his hired hand, and last trusted friend, Mitch (Morgan Freeman), who was gravely injured in an encounter with a grizzly bear. Einar intends to live out his days in this heartbroken solitude.. until the very person he blames for his son's accident comes to town: his daughter-in-law Jean (Jennifer Lopez).

Jean shows up broke, on the run and with a girl named Griff (Becca Gardner), who she swears is the granddaughter Einar never knew he had. Suddenly, Einar's quiet life is turned upside down as anger and accusations resurface. But slowly, miraculously, 11-year-old Griff's curiosity about Western life, and her longing for a family and father figure, begin to chip away at the stone that has become Einar's heart - opening up the way for unexpected connection, adventure, mercy and true reunion.
