A Wild West: A world where men ride horses and women ride bicycles. A world that is changed forever when Ruthie’s husband, Jack (biggest pistol in town), wins three larger-than-life stallions in an auction. Hell-bent on riding the stallions, Ruthie finds herself enticed by Rooster and Pearl, two women with their eyes set on the horizon line, on a place impossible to reach by bicycle. With the help from a forward-thinking heifer (yes, a cow), the women discover the kind of strength female friendship can inspire. And ultimately, they try to find a place all their own.
