His fight for self-respect was just beginning....
A compassionate love story tracing the relationship between a burnt out country-and-western star and the young widow he meets in a small Texas motel. With a past littered with the spoils of fame and scarred by the effects of alcoholism. Mac Sledge (Robert Duvall) is not a man with a lot of confidence when it comes to handling feelings. Two broken marriages and a painful descent from stardom has left him with a low opinion of himself and the rest of mankind. But with Rosa Lee and her young boy Sonny he learns to appreciate, for the very first time, the healing power of love's 'Tender Mercies'.
