After the death of one of her clients in embarrassing circumstances, frontier saloon girl Leticia Murphy flees with erstwhile town drunk and handyman Eulis Potter. Eager to forget her colorful past and find redemption, Lettie is determined to turn over a new leaf, and Eulis is happy to follow her.
The couple impersonates a preacher and his wife on the road from the Kansas Territories to Colorado. Along their journey, they marry couples, baptize babies, and perform burials.

But when their true identities are discovered, Letty and Eulis must rely on each other, and the frontier toughness they've both had to develop in their previous lives to survive.
