Story intro

Nelson Coxman's quiet life as a snowplow driver in the glitzy Rocky Mountains resort town Kehoe, where he was just awarded "Citizen of the Year", is disrupted when his son dies from a heroin overdose. A depressed Coxman is preparing to commit suicide, only to stop when he learns that his son was murdered by a drug cartel. This causes him to become a vigilante, killing several members of the cartel while crafting a modified hunting rifle. The cartel's ringleader, Trevor Calcote, known as Viking amongst his peers, suspects that these deaths are the work of a Native American drug cartel controlled by White Bull, with whom he has earlier avoided conflict. Viking kills White Bull's only son. This sparks a gang war between the two factions. Viking eventually learns that Coxman has killed his men, and tries in vain to call off the gang war, not realizing White Bull intends to exact revenge through a blood debt; "a son for a son". Meanwhile, Coxman kidnaps Viking's son in an attempt to draw the drug lord into the open. Viking's gang arrive at Coxman's company property and capture him. White Bull's gang arrives shortly thereafter with the intention of vengeance. During the ensuing shootout, most of the gangsters are killed while Viking is shot in the chest by White Bull after Coxman managed to drop a shorn tree on Viking's car. Viking dies later when found by police detectives Kimberly Dash and her partner Gip. As Coxman leaves the property in his snowplow to continue his work, White Bull jumps into the cab and the two men drive away together. The last remaining member of White Bull's gang accidentally paraglides into the snowplow, killing him.
