When Charley Floyd and his wife pay their old friends, Mayme and O.C. a visit, everything changes. Charley, aka Pretty Boy Floyd, is wanted for killing a lawman. His wounds require more help than Mayme can provide which forces her to break her silence and seek help from Dr. Joe Stern.

Over time, Joe and Mayme forge a strong bond as they care for other wounded men. They share dangerous secrets, dangerous lives, dangerous patients and a dangerous love.
