Disgraced Top Gun fighter pilot Butch Masters leads a rogue squad in recovery of a WMD. Masters must navigate a fractured friendship, a love triangle, and must take to the skies to reclaim his military and personal honor.
In southwestern Ontario, ex-baseball player Ray Dokes, upon being released from jail, returns to his rural hometown to stay temporarily with his deceased father's Texan friend, small time horse breeder Pete Culpepper, until he has some footing in whatever the next phase of his life. Ray's two year incarceration was for assaulting Sonny Stanton, the arrogant son of the wealthiest stable owner and horse breeder in the area, Earl Stanton.

Keith Carradine and Ernie Hudson are great and perfect for their roles . Nice story set in Canadian early Autumn . A laid back movie with a great ending that you will never tire of watching ; especially if you are a horse lover ! Made with mostly Canadian actors including First Nation Graham Greene and Gary Farmer. Luke Kirby is excellent in leading role . Set is in Fort Erie Canada and revolves around Kirby just released from 2 years of prison coming " home" to his fathers friend ( Carradine) a struggling farmer and small time race horse raiser struggling to make ends meet . All about setting things right and the little guy trying to come out ahead by taking down corrupt creeps . I highly recommend watching this movie and have no idea how some gave it a fair rating. Also has great background music and soundtrack .
