This western saga marks the return of the Cartwright clan. Though none of the original cast members of the long-running TV western return, some of the roles are played by their children. In this new version, which was designed to be a pilot for a new TV show, the Ponderosa has been taken over by the late Ben Cartwright's brother, a former sailor. When he thoughtlessly gives over drilling rights to land-grabblers the nephews gather together to stop them from destroying the land.
