When a professional hitman comes to town to collect his payment for each life he takes, will Sis be up to the challenge? Where does the local mafia head and owner of the Wild Onion bar stand? Is he truly running a legitimate business, or is he involved with the deaths? Payment for Life; it could be a retirement check, or it could be the manner in which a hitman gets paid. 1.

Calling in a long overdue loan, Luke finds himself reluctantly accepting a bargain in lieu of payment from the shiftless farmer who barters his daughter to settle his debt. Philamena Booth is both mortified and relieved when her father sends her off with the banker as payment of his debt. Held captive on the farm by her father since the death of her mother more than a decade earlier, Philamena is grateful to leave.
