Sebastian Collogero (Giancarlo Giannini) is the patriarch of a Sicilian family farming and making wine in rural California. His roguish son Marco (Eric Roberts) pursues neighbor Antonio Segestra's daughter Angelica. They are an immigrant community proud to be new citizens. Land baron William Bradford Berrigan (Dennis Hopper) is looking to take over the valley to build his railroad. Sebastian Collogero leads the farmers in opposition. Mr. Berrigan brings in Andrews (Burt Young) and his thugs to kill Collogero. Devoted daughter Maria Collogero (Julia Roberts) witnesses the lynching and Marco leads a war against Berrigan.

Eric Roberts has his fluffy flowing hair and struts around while overacting. The release was delayed and this is actually one of the first acting roles for Julia. That's probably the only interesting aspect of this movie. It is visually more align with a TV movie although director Peter Masterson obviously is shooting higher. The overall quality is not good and its higher aspirations only make it worst.
