Plot – After an amazing hangover, Mac Sledge, a famous country music songwriter, wakes up in a small Texan motel alone and without a dollar. He's generously offered room and board in exchange of small jobs by Rosa Lee, the young widow of a veteran soldier who lives with her young son Sonny and runs the local gas station. Mac finds the nest that suits him. He's divorced by a famous singer and he doesn't know what's happened to his ex-wife nor to his daughter Sue Anne. As he likes Rosa and her son, he decides to get married, but Mac's ex-wife arrives on tour in the near town and he's caught by nostalgia because he meets Sue Anne. After a short encounter, the girl flees but she dies in a car accident. Now, Mac feels all his past is really behind him. The small motel is his refuge now as he considers Rosa and Sonny a safe and happy oasis.
