Recently discharged from the army, retired-sergeant Claudius Sears, finds himself once more embroiled in a war he desperately seeks to leave behind.  His journey west, away from the killing fields of the Civil War, only leads him into further bloodshed as he tries to protect innocents from harm.  When a party of pioneers is attacked along the Kansas-Missouri border, Sears is pulled back into the War Between the States.  While doing his best to avoid the soul-crushing weight of responsibility for others, Sears soon comes to realize that he is indeed his brother’s keeper.
