The film opens with a beautiful landscape in Odim County. We see Cash with a burned right hand working out. After a while, he visits his brother-in-law Finney and niece Savannah, living in the same county in a house amidst greenery with farm animals. Savannah is an intelligent teenager. Cash jokes around with Savannah and finds Finney fast asleep. He wakes him up, and all three of them tend to the farm animals.

Savannah realizes her mare is about to give birth and watches her first delivery of a mare. Cash and Finney talk about Finney’s dead wife, knowing she would have been proud of Finney for how he handled the birth situation. Cash and Savannah leave for the church, and Finney refuses to visit. He promises to join them for a meal later. Pastor Wilder gives a sermon on how he let go of his violent and rogue days and found the calling of God.

Wilder and Cash seem to know each other, probably from the violent days. Savannah shows the pocket knife her uncle had given her. Cash and Savannah stop by for a meal. Cash gets away from the table to talk to Finney, and a couple of gangsters walk in and sit with Savannah. In fact, Cash knows these people from his time with the gang and asks Savannah to get away and talk to the guys.

Cash gets to know that Finney owes money to Big Cat and he confronts about the same to a drunk Finney. Cash asks him to stay away from the house while he handles it. He visits the sheriff, but it isn’t of any use. He then visits Zeke-Big Cat’s son, and it leads nowhere. Meanwhile, Big Cat’s men visit Finney and beat him up in front of Savannah. One of the boys tries to touch Savannah, and she scratches his face with her pocket knife.

Cash pays a visit to Big Cat and asks her how much money Finney owes. But he realizes that this debt needs to be paid differently. She tells him to come back to business with her and do three jobs for her, and she will consider the debt paid. Without any other choice, Finney agrees. Big Cat also has a drug gang, and two men were caught spying on them. One is killed, the other one is tortured, and his thumbs are cut off and sent out as an example. Harlen calls his gang, and they meet.

Cash and Big Cat’s other men tail Harlen and learn that the gang wants to attack Big Cat that night. Big Cat’s gang attacks this gang before they make a move and take down the gang. This is Cash’s first job. Cash takes Finney hunting and asks him to spend time with his daughter and get his act together. Finney puts up a campfire, and Cash talks to Savannah. Savannah insists she can help, but they ask her to stay out of this nasty business. Finney also gets to know the deal with Big Cat and tries to help in any way he can.

Dominic calls Cash for the second job. They are to deliver drugs, collect Cash, and return. Lazarus, another gang member, is their contact. Dominic tells Cash that Lazarus needs to be killed as he was caught making drug deals without the gang knowing, and Big Cat wants to send a message with this kill. Dominic is nervous and upset about it, and Cash asks him to finish it nice and clean.

Lazarus joins them, and Dominic is jittery. They wait for Lazarus’ contact to arrive, but Lazarus feels something is wrong, and, in a panicked state, Dominic kills Lazarus before the deal is made. The other gang contacts Lazarus, saying they are 15 minutes out, and Dominic responds, saying he won’t be there, but his boys will. The other gang comes out and is unhappy not to see Lazarus. Cash tries to negotiate, but the other gang starts a gang fight.

Two important members die, but another rookie is trying to fight them. Cash stops him and convinces him to finish the deal and live a peaceful life. Finney comes to their rescue as they transfer the money and Lazarus’s body to his truck. Cash burns the other car. This is Cash’s second job. Finney asks Cash what if Big Cat won’t let him go, and Cash says he has another plan. He meets Officer Duke and tells him how to catch Big Cat. At the same time, Duke catches’ a woman carrying drugs and arrests her.

Big Cat invites all the boys for dinner, which includes Cash. Cash is visibly uncomfortable being there. Big Cat gives a toast to her son Zeke and also to Cash for being back with the gang and handling a difficult situation. She then surprises everyone by bringing in Duke, saying he had tried to take down the gang. Duke is tortured and begs for his life, but she kills him. She asks Cash to dump his body. Cash tells her that this will be his last job, but Big Cat threatens him, saying he is done when she says he is done.

Cash’s plan goes haywire, so he starts to gather evidence on Big Cat and the gang. Sheriff Hollister visits Big Cat, and it is revealed he is working for her and not the people. Big Cat gets to know that Duke is talking to Cash, and that’s how Duke is able to get to him. She asks her men to handle the situation severely. Finney decides to go to church that day, and Wilder is thrilled to see him. Finney, however, starts to feel overwhelmed and gets out for some air. Wilder and Savannah join him.

Big Cat’s men beat Finney in front of the church. Savannah is caught, and Wilder gets violent for a moment to free Savannah. Finney is dead by the time Cash arrives. He wants to send Savannah to a safe place, and he prays to God with Wilder and is very genuine with his intentions of taking revenge on Big Cat. Savannah is staying with Wilder, and Big Cat’s goon beats him up to take them to Savannah. Savannah hears this and co-operates with them, and they take her.

They tell Wilder to tell Cash that Big Cat wants a clean trade in his life for Savannah. Wilder and Cash come up with a plan, and they kidnap Zeke and tell Big Cat that they will give him to her in exchange for Savannah. They agree to meet. Wilder takes Zeke on the bonnet of the car and drives in. They are having a conversation when Savannah gets smart and breaks free and shoots the man watching her.
