Synopsis

Seeking revenge, young Irishman Joseph Donnelly wounds his landlord and finds himself on the run from a law that favors the rich. Donnelly finds an unlikely ally in his landlord's daughter Shannon, who agrees to sneak him out of the country. The two immigrants hop a boat and land in Boston, where they struggle to make ends meet and decide to risk everything in the Oklahoma Territory, where a race promises land to anyone with the courage to stake it out.
