A Cowgirl's Story

A Cowgirl's Story

Dusty Rhodes is new at Jefferson High School. She has come to live with her army chaplain grandfather because both her parents are fighting in the Afghanistan war - her mother is an army helicopter pilot and her father a Special Forces Army Ranger. Dusty makes friends with a group that includes Savanah, a girl whose father was killed while fighting in Iraq three years earlier. Dusty is a cowgirl and she gets the school to agree to her forming an equestrian drill team. She enlists her new city slicker friends to join the team. Dusty's faith is seriously tested when her mother’s helicopter is shot down in action. Her grandfather tells her that God has a plan for everyone and believing in him is all or nothing – you can’t do faith halfway. With the help of her grandfather and friends, Dusty struggles to stay positive. But her father is wounded and he returns home. When he hears that Dusty and the team cancelled their upcoming rodeo event because of him, he convinces them to ride. Dusty agrees and the team puts on a special benefit - for her mother. The team’s performance is beautiful. And when grandfather reads the 23rd Psalm to the audience there is not a dry eye in the arena. Dusty looks up into the sky and knows in her heart that everything is going to be alright.
