In 1870 Texas, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd is a traveling newsreader who agrees to deliver 10-year-old Johanna to San Antonio. Johanna has recently been rescued from Indian captivity, and is being sent to live with relatives. In a journey reminiscent of True Grit, the duo tentatively begin to trust each other and form a bond. When they arrive in San Antonio and the relatives prove unwilling to take the child, Kidd has a decision to make.
