Sixteen-year-old Sally is sullen, slovenly, uncommunicative and refuses to attend school. She is a trial to her widowed mother and a pain to the juvenile authorities. Her arrest record already includes shoplifting and drug & alcohol possession when she is caught with a group of kids attempting an armed robbery. She is given one last chance to redeem herself.
Her uncle, Big Al Axel, owner of the Lazy A, a large, very remote cattle ranch agrees to take her in and try to straighten her out. He needs a new ranch cook and housekeeper anyway.
Clean air, good food, hard work and the natural deference ranch hands pay to members of the fair sex soon bring out the real Sally. She had been forced, under threat of physical and sexual violence to do the things she had done in the city and had withdrawn into a shell.
