SYNOPSIS: Fueled by gin and sheer determination, Ms. Liz operates her third generation dairy farm outside the region's domineering co-ops. To help keep the place afloat, she's employed five renegade ranch hands. These boys have put a pin in responsibility and opted to stretch out the party as long as possible. Unfortunately, women, booze, and fisticuffs can only lead to one outcome: trouble. When the dust settles, we realize it's not simply a story about winners and losers or finding your way. It's about purpose: to find what you believe in, through change, through loss, even if it's the small things. Then hold on to it and fight for it, because in the end that's all you have.
