Plot Summary

A prospector sells his wife and daughter to another gold miner for the rights to a gold mine. Twenty years later, the prospector is a wealthy man who owns much of the old west town named Kingdom Come. But changes are brewing and his past is coming back to haunt him. A surveyor and his crew scout the town as a location for a new railroad line and a young woman suddenly appears in the town and is evidently the man's daughter. Written by John Sacksteder

Trivia The official Web site of the movie was one of the first to track a production day by day, with journal entries, commentary, still photographs and video. The Web site visitors were asked to help pick a new name for the production when the original title, "Kingdom Come", was awarded by the M.P.A.A. to a rival production. See more »
Goofs Near the end of the film, Donald and Francis arrive back to town on horseback. Several men are walking behind them. Two men in Russian style hats are wearing modern day aviator sunglasses. See more »
