In the wake of a devastating forest wildfire that swept through Texas back in 1988, the thoughtful and disciplined Alvin, and his polar opposite but well-meaning brother-in-law, Lance, are hired to repair the scorched roads. However, against the backdrop of a summertime solitude in the ravaged land, little by little, the task of painting yellow traffic lines down the middle of a new country road will eventually lead to a piercing tension between the two workers. As frictions keep growing, will the unlikely duo learn from each other's faults to finally bond?
