With his new wife, Maggie, in tow, Tan sets out to claim land for a ranch, but finds he isn't able to meet the requirements by himself. A letter sent to him demands – work the land or lose it. Tan turns to the boys on the streets of St. Paul for help. These orphans are notorious thieves, known as scallywags only fit to work prison farms. Forced to grow up fast, they dodge the local sheriff and commit any crime necessary in order to survive, but Tan has faith in them, and attempts to save them from a life of jail and forced labour.
Soon Tan finds himself with a band of hungry, dirty, undisciplined, and selfish boys on his hands. What hope does he have to make a family out of these individuals? What skills will it take to train them? Will there be enough time for Tan and the boys to save the ranch land? Will Tan and Maggie be able to give them a hope for life?
