An over-the-hill rodeo champion gets fired from his assembly line job in Texas. He and a buddy then decide to head to Wyoming to get a job herding mustangs. His wife gives him her his blessing, knowing he needs to find something which satisfies his spirit. They sign up for a roundup headed by a veteran cowboy. With the job, he finds himself cross-wise of a corrupt government official, who is making big profits on the illegal sale of wild horses. He also finds himself in the affections of the daughter of an old ranch owner. Written by

In this modern day western tale, country singer Kenny Rogers departs from his normal role as the Gambler with mixed results. The cast is excellent and includes western greats Ben Johnson, Richard Farnsworth and Buck Taylor. Pam Dawber turns in a good performance as the female lead.
The storyline was interesting and the veteran actors do their best with a so-so script. As an actor, Rogers is a good singer .........
It was nice to see these actors work together on such an interesting movie premise, but unfortunately the final film seems somewhat bland........ For fans of the stars only .
