It's a day like any other, except for the money, and the hot roast beef with mustard, chocolate shake, and hot apple pie at Charlie's. Naomi Wilcox's life is in limbo before that Saturday when she finds herself driving too fast on a two lane blacktop in Nevada, a bag stuffed with bundles of hundred-dollar bills next to her, and a new life ahead. And then there appears a truck, a bull, and a slow-talking cowboy. And still she runs until there is nowhere to go except to Charlie's where the cowboy teaches her more than she would have ever imagined, that she has the power to make her own choices.
