1980. Texan rodeo star Mike Milo has retired due to a severe back injury. One day his friend Howard Polk hires him to travel to Mexico City and bring back Howard's 13-year-old son, Rafo, who has long been in Mexico with his mother, Leta. Upon entering Mexico, Mike meets Leta, who tells him that Rafo has turned to a life of crime. Intrigued with the possibility of seeing his father's ranch, Rafo agrees to go with Mike back to Texas, but Leta tells Mike that she wants her son to stay in Mexico and threatens him. Driving back to Texas alone, Mike discovers that Rafo has snuck onto his truck, and continues with him towards the border. Pursued by Leta's henchmen, the two get to know each other and tell each other about each other's lives, including the violence suffered by Rafo from his stepfather and the death of Mike's wife and son. The journey will allow both of them to come to terms with themselves and the future that awaits them.
