Eighteen-year-old Joe Vasquez leaves Denver for Texas with Harley Bray, the cow kid who never fit in at their high school. In spite of discovering there's another side to Harley's nature-occasional "withdrawals" from roadside convenience stores, a nefarious skill he teaches Joe-Joe shares Harley's dream of riding bulls and a life together on the Texas plains outside of Abilene. A life that will hopefully see the fulfillment of another of Joe's dreams-to become a veterinarian.
When a rank bull kills Harley in a rodeo in Longview, Texas, Joe accepts an offer from another bull rider, Shane Thorpe, to partner up and ride the circuit together. The problem is that the blond-haired, blue-eyed Shane found Jesus a long time ago, and he's torn between his faith and his attraction to Joe. As they make their way across Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Arizona to their final stop on the circuit at the National Western Rodeo in Denver, Joe bides his time for what he hopes will be a relationship with Shane as fulfilling as the one he'd had with Harley. His hopes for the future, however, are challenged along the way when he discovers that his "withdrawals" have captured the attention of a dedicated Texas Ranger.
