When Florida game warden, Tom Jay Harding, finds ten year-old boy, Virgil Cleary, rambling in the wilds they soon bond — the boy becomes the son he never had and the man becomes the father the boy never knew. Tom Jay becomes legal guardian to Virgil who exhibits an early genius for tracking. Like Tom Jay Virgil becomes a game warden. Shortly into his career Virgil learns that Tom Jay has been murdered. Though the evidence is incomplete and the main suspect is presumed dead, Virgil is sure the killer, a local poacher, is alive and has fled the area. Virgil takes off his badge and sets out to track the killer on his own, a search that takes him across the country where he encounters both the love of his life… and Tom jay’s killer.
