A divorced dad and his ex-con brother resort to a desperate scheme in order to save their family's farm in West Texas. In a story where the Old West meets the New West, two brothers - Toby (Chris Pine), a straight-laced and divorced father trying to provide for his son, and Tanner (Ben Foster), a short-tempered ex-con - rob branch after branch of the bank that's foreclosing their family land. The pair seem to be getting away with their calculated crimes until they reach the radar of a foul-mouthed Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges), who's determined to crack one last case before he retires.
