Jack has to take on Ted Donner, whose plans for the town are not as he'd like everyone to believe. Jack is repeatedly tested by the impossible challenges before him, but through his own genuine passion and with Sean as his resourceful and ever-optimistic sidekick, he wins back his daughter's affection and the town's respect, and even Sutter's grudging gratitude. But, most importantly, he wins back his wife. And then he has to fight for his life.

And when there's no other genetic match, Sean gets to be the hero and rescue his grandfather.
