A Hollywood actress and a former NFL star strive to save a troubled Texas town while bonding over their shared love of a very special 10-year-old girl who has found herself alone in the world for the very first time. In the wake of her mother's death, 10-year-old Cotton's (Bailee Madison) future is looking uncertain when her older, half-sister Sunny (Laura Bell Bundy), a famous Hollywood actress, returns to their small hometown of Bent Arrow to say her last goodbyes. Meanwhile, one-time NFL great Butch (Conrad Goode) has returned to Bent Arrow to begin a career as an artist. He's deeply concerned about Cotton, and knows her even better than Sunny, who left home before she was born. When Butch meets Sunny he recognizes the troubles she is going through, and does his best to help. Later, as Butch and Sunny find strength in their growing bond over Cotton, they realize they may be Bent Arrow's last hope for conquering a crisis that may lead the small town to ruin.
