Set in 2005, Cathedral Canyon is the story of a Phoenix area criminal/businessman, Ryan McBride, (played by Harmon) who has spent the last few years tiring of his main occupation as the go-between and facilitator for criminals and the City establishment. He desires to do something more with his life and like so many others at the time, sees the booming real estate market as his ticket out. To that end, even though people around him are threatened by his desire to move on, he leverages all he has and becomes a principal in the sort of crooked real estate deal that he normally merely brokers for the big-shots.
The City is happy to do business with them, as they believe that the polygamists, with their proclivity for forced underage brides, have as much to lose by public exposure as they do. It is an arrangement that has worked very well for both sides for years. When McBride happens by accident upon a young girl from the cult, Ruthie, (Noelle Wheeler), a chain of events is set in motion that will change things for all of them forever.
The film also features B&B star John McCook and former cast member Lorenzo Lamas, who is credited as a producer as well.
