A past-his-prime cowboy travels to the Middle East to saddle up for a grueling horse race through the desert.

Frank T. Hopkins, esteemed cowboy once touted as the greatest horse rider in the West's wild history, struggles with his conscience and existence thanks to his witnessing the persecution of Native Americans at Wounded Knee. A wealthy Arab sheik tempts Hopkins with an offer to prove his legendary status at a three-thousand-mile race across the Arabian desert known as the "Ocean of Fire", drawing our lonesome cowboy into a battle for survival and honor like none other as he looks to reign supreme over his stiff competition.
