The townspeople know that they may be next, and so they enlist the help of Elias Trace, a man battle-tested from the Civil War. Even though he''s seen enough blood to last a lifetime, he knows he must do whatever he can to prevent violence from coming to the town where he''s come to live a peaceful life.

If he wants to protect Emma and the town, Elias must lead a militia of ranch hands, young boys and women against a band of outlaws. There can only be one outcome in "From Hell to Breakfast,"
