In 1930s Idaho, as the sun bakes what’s left of the harvest and the bank stands ready to foreclose, the help of good neighbors is the difference between surviving or moving on. Nell and Aggie are on the edge of losing their years of devotion to their farm, and when townsfolk learn the true nature of their relationship, any hope of credit to the next harvest dries up.
Just when Nell and Aggie are considering loading their last possession on a wagon, a married couple on the run from the law offers a solution. No one, not even the town’s grim patriarchs, can predict what will happen next.
