In the 1950s, a Romeo and Juliet theme lives between the Chanteur and Santos families in the agricultural town of Moxee, Washington. Pepe Santos is the field manager for Victor Chanteur's 100 acres of hops; his family lives in a laborer's cabin a half field from the Chanteur's big house.

T-Luc, Valentina Chanteur, Domingo and Pilar Santos attend Holy Rosary Catholic School and are the best of friends. They do not regard the boundaries the adults have lived with for generations. Trouble boils when Domingo and Valentina fall in love and Victor Chanteur fires a shotgun at Domingo. Uncle Emile attempts to bring compassion and love to the troubled families as the teen lovers cross blood and cultures.

Victor Chanteur alienates his children and his wife with his violent acts but in the finale', the most unexpected generosity unite the Chanteur and Santos' families.
