Sis and husband felt for years they owned the place, they had raised their children here, and worked day and night to keep the place financially stable. They had fought disease, insects, and violent weather. Now they faced financial ruin, and local politicians and a bank wanting to develop the land. Into this mix, comes her brother, disillusioned and angry, discharged due to malaria he caught in a tour of duty in a tropical jungle. Bitter and disillusioned, he briefly finds relief with old friends, but one is suddenly killed in a fiery crash of her crop duster. Torn by memories, he finds the place a haunting trap. Could the kid who was once ridiculed in school as “Wheat Dandy” because of his homemade clothes find the heart in his dark soul to save the family farm. This is a story of the things which are best in the human spirit, courage, humbleness, and its unlikely heroes.
