Plot: The story begins twenty years after the Gold Rush of 1849, which prompted one of the largest human migrations in history, as a half-million people from around the world descended in droves upon primal California in search of rumored gold. Daniel Dillon (Peter Mullan) is a pioneer who defied the harsh winter landscape and amassed unimaginable riches, becoming the veritable king of a thriving mountain town called Kingdom Come, where he owns everything of importance, including the bank, the mine, the hotel and the liquor store. He even has won the affections of the exotic local brothel owner Lucia (Milla Jovovich).
Now the blind ambition and greed that drove him to succeed are about to catch up with him as three strangers come into town. One is Mr. Dalglish (Wes Bentley), a surveyor looking to expand the Central Pacific Railroad into Kingdom Come, threatening to make or break the future of the town. The other are two women - the beautiful young Hope (Sarah Polley) and the ailing Elena (Nastassja Kinski) - who hold secrets from Dillon's past that could be his undoing. Even in this land of immense landscapes, and even bigger changes, the most remarkable shifts of all still take place in the heart.
