Storyline

A gang of bank robbers gets the drop on Lucas at his ranch, and the ringleader tells him that they're going to use him to help rob the North Fork bank and keep Mark at the ranch as a hostage, and will kill him if something goes wrong. The robbery goes off as planned, but Mark is accidentally hurt in a fall back at the ranch. When Lucas discovers this, he becomes enraged and sets out after the gang, determined to make them pay for injuring his son. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Mark is injured and Lucas is none to happy.
14 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Three men drop by the McCain ranch with plans for Lucas to help them get into the North Fork Bank. In order to get Lucas to help them, they leave one member back at the ranch holding Mark hostage. If something goes wrong then the man has instruction to kill Mark.

Lucas has no other choice but to help them get chummy with the bank manager. As the manager lets his guard down, the two men rob the bank of the money in the safe.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, Mark tries to escape but ends up tripping over a log and hitting his head on a rock. It is unclear if Mark is going to live as the three men get the heck out of town because they know that Lucas will be following them.

And as expect, when Lucas makes his way back to the house and finds Mark injured, he sets out to bring the men to justice at all cost.

This was actually a great plot with interesting characters. The man left back with Mark seems to be mentally challenged and is also the brother of the lead bank robber. This will prove to be a situation that brings the entire plot together in a way that will please the viewer. Only draw-back is that it was only a thirty minute show.
