Hewey Calloway has a problem. In his West Texas home of
1906, the land of the way of life that he loves are changing
too quickly for his taste.
Hewey dreams of freedom--he wants only to be a footloose
horseback cowboy, endlessly wandering the open range. But
the open range of his childhood is slowly disappearing: land
is being parceled out, and barbed-wire fences are spring up
all over. As if that weren't enough, cars and other machines
are invading Hewey's simple cowboy life, stinking up the
area and threatening to replace horse travel.
As Hewey struggles against the relentless stream of
"progress", he comes to realize that the simple life of his
childhood is gone, that a man can't live a life whose time
has passed, and that every choice he makes--even those that
lead to happiness--requires a sacrifice.
