Set in the 1960s in the American West amidst the glamour of the rodeo and the desperation of suburban Houston, this is the story of young irresistible Patsy Carpenter. Feeling trapped in her new marriage to the shiftless Jim and searching for a meaning to her life, Patsy seeks answers through her relationships with a colorful cast of characters from highbrows to cowpokes to rodeo queens.
