    Tom Hunter (Peter Fonda) returns with his son after the breakup of his marriage to the rural Arkansas farmland where most of his family still lives. He soon discovers that things are not well at the old home - his father Jeff (John Doucette) and many of the neighboring farmers and ranchers are under threat from an evil corporation that wants to acquire their land so they can strip-mine it for coal. Having refused to accept the financial offer made by unscrupulous business tycoon Pierce Crabtree (Philip Carey), Jeff and his family find themselves at the mercy of hired goons who have instructions to intimidate them into submission. Tom is not a man of violence, so he tries to get the local police to deal with the problem through the proper channels. But the sheriff, Len Skerritt (Harry Northup), proves so ineffectual that Tom quickly realizes that a tougher stance is needed. Pushed to the limit following the death of his brother, sister-in-law and father, Tom finally snaps and exacts a harsh revenge on the villains with the help of his bow and arrow single-handedly taking on the bad guys. Like the tagline says: when you push too far, even a peaceful man gets fighting mad! The bespectacled Fonda makes for a great low-key hero worth rooting for.
