In 1880 Zenith Texas, the McKenzie sisters, Meg, Annabelle, and Ruby find themselves penniless after the death of their father. When the bank threatens foreclosure, the women realize they need a way to support themselves. They have three options: marriage, women’s work, or… following in their papa’s footsteps.

After her failed proposal of marriage, Meg McKenzie turns to her dream of being a seamstress and discovers its not all its cracked up to be. Sweet and practical Annabelle McKenzie gives waitressing a whirl, but soon wandering hands shove her out the door. The youngest of the McKenzie sisters, Ruby has her rose-colored glasses tarnished when she discovers cleaning houses can be hazardous to her virtue.

Spectacularly fired from their traditional jobs, they have no choice but to follow in their father’s footsteps – bounty-hunting.
