Rose is a young Mexican migrant, abandoned and lost in turbulent 1930’s California. She clings to Margaret Thomas, a Kansas farmwife displaced by the dust bowl. Together they grieve a lost family and search for home and healing in the midst of unrelenting hardships. Could John Bollen, the generous wheat farmer down the road, be a savior for them both? A powerful journey of the heart unfolds for three people who find their lives intertwined, each desperate to heal the past and embrace a new future.
