He tries to follow his grandfather's advice in regard to the heartwood tree, a tree that grows in layers. This is to make a good life by keeping the roots in a clear stream and opposing anyone who tries to taint the water for you. Unfortunately, local kingpin Earl Deitrich, who has gathered a fortune by using and tainting anyone in his path, is not one of Billy Bob's favorite people, especially since he lusts after the kingpin's wife. When Holland defends a man accused of stealing valuables from Deitrich's office, he finds a formidable opponent in Deitrich, and to further muddy the waters, his own past comes up to haunt him.
