Clifford "Fishtail" Riley (Frankie Darro) is stunned when his hardworking father, Daniel (Frank Shannon), plummets to his doom at the bottom of their nascent oil well. In mourning, and desperate for money, Fishtail decides to sell the business -- until heroic geologist Hank Langford (Roy Mason) encourages him to carry on the family tradition.
