Dillon is a pioneer who defied the harsh winter in search of rumored gold. Having amassed unimaginable riches, he runs a thriving mining town called Kingdom Come. But the blind ambition and greed that drove him to succeed finally catch up to him with the arrival of 3 strangers. Dalglish, a surveyor looking to expand the railroad threatens the future of the town -- and 2 women from Dillon's past hold a secret that could be his undoing.
