When Dr. Marcus Sommers (Kevin Costner) realizes that he and his estranged brother David (David Grant) may be prone to a fatal brain disease that runs in their family, he decides to make peace with his sibling and invites him on a trip to the Rockies. There, the brothers bond over their shared enthusiasm for cycling and decide to enter a grueling bike race through the mountains known as the Hell of the West. What happens next changes both the race and their lives.
