Overview

Three generations of Koopmans live under the same roof of a farm house twenty miles from the center of Holy Cross, Iowa.

Grandma Koopman still reigns tight-fistedly over the house she and her Anton--God rest his soul--built from nothing back during the Depression. Her son Nels and his wife Bobbi run the farm: two hundred milk cows, three hundred acres of corn, and four hundred of soybeans. But the rain won't stop, and the bills keep right on coming each month.

Thirty-year-old William Koopman needs to move out. He almost did just that a decade ago to get his own place. Then Grandpa died, and William couldn't leave Dad hanging. So he stayed, married his girl Marcy, and even brought her to the farmhouse to live. Poor girl made it a year before she bolted at the end of a rough winter.

A week after Marcy left, William's shiftless younger brother John returns. The prodigal son heading back home from Chicago, tail between his legs and no money in his wallet. William must go after Marcy, keep from killing his unemployed brother, and help save the family farm before this growing season ends.
