Tully Coates, a Nebraska ranch owner, runs his property with the help of his two sons, Earl and Tully Jr. The three men have reacted in different ways to the death of Mrs. Coates some years back; Earl leads a quiet life, while Tully Jr spends most of his time with the local floozy, April, who makes a living as a stripper.
