Jonas Cable is living exactly the life he wants...in a cabin on a lake in Montana. But a letter from a daughter he wasn't allowed to see changes all that in a heartbeat. He has a grandson he didn't know about, and his daughter pleads with him to get the 14 year old boy out of the hood. Does he owe her anything? Can he put up with a bad kid from East L.A.? And why should he change his life for someone he doesn't know and has not heard from in 30 years? And the last thing he needs is to get crossways with the L. A. gangs.
