Pioneer town Abilene, Kansas, is the setting in which tensions between long-settled cattle ranchers and new homesteaders play out. Abilene sits at the tail of a livestock path that stretches all the way to Texas. The community-at-large is split in half between those who want this place to stay a rowdy frontier town and those who yearn to change it into a tranquil place where they can raise a family. Based on the novel "Trail Town" by Ernest Haycox. Originally released as a theatrical production.
