Synopsis by Hal Erickson
After several rocky years, divorced farmer Stephen Landis (Tom Selleck) seems to have gotten his life together: His business is thriving, and his personal life has found stability and support in the form of his current girlfriend, Leah (Anna Gunn), and her teenaged daughter, Roxanne (Tegan Moss). Things change radically when Dulcie (Maggie Grace), Stephen's 16-year-old daughter from his first marriage, comes to stay at his farm for the summer. Stephen's ex Angela (Wendy Crewson) has warned him that the mercurial, streetwise Dulcie is "troubled" -- but that's not the half of it. The girl's disruptive and self-destructive behavior, coupled with Stephen's ingrown feelings of guilt, threatens to ruin his present life and blight his future -- until fate, and a driving rainstorm, intervene. Made for television 12 Mile Road first aired September 28, 2003.
