Knox is a lawyer in Coleman who struggles with one day taking over her family’s ranch; Dauses is the general manager of a cow-calf operation in Forestburg who dreams of becoming a mother; and Santos is a young college graduate who has a difficult time finding entry-level work while her family’s Laredo land shrinks because of urbanization.
