Eddie and Charles Drummond are mirror twins, identical, yet opposite. The boys have a fight and do not speak until their mother dies, nearly twenty years later. Both men are now married with families of their own and they try to put the past where it belongs. Sensitive, politically charged issues arise, which drive the families further apart. Sparks fly as the far right meets the radical left.
When the 38 year old widow, heir to 350 acres of pristine Arizona ranch land, sets out to find a ranch hand to help her, she hires the young athletic 6'1", 185# hitchhiker. As the work progresses, more then Arizona heat boils the blood and even after-hour swims at the pond do little to cool off the desires that he awakens within her.
