Overview

This documentary highlights the demise of the American family farm by focusing on the misfortunes of one family. Husband-and-wife filmmakers Jeanne Jordan and Steven Ascher returned from their home in Massachusetts to record a crisis involving the Jordan family's Iowa farm. The family has owned the farm since 1867. In recent generations, the Jordans have borrowed money from the local bank to work the farm. Now, Russell and Mary Jane Jordan owe $200,000, and the bank wants the money repaid. They are adamant that the farm must remain in the family, however, and they sell all of their belongings to pay off the bank so that they can give the land to their son Jim. After their home is stripped and their precious belongings are auctioned off, the Jordans move to a tiny house in a nearby town, but Jim keeps the farm -- at least for the time being. ~ Michael Betzold

    Heartfelt Movie with Real People

    Not only have I seen this documentary and thought that it was excellent, but I also know several members of the Jordan family. They are very special people. This movie shows you real people with real emotions struggling through real trials. It not only gives you a glimpse of life in southwest Iowa, but it gives you a glimpse of life.
