Hearon Smalls and his daughter Vette run a tobacco farm in the hot, dusty landscape of North Carolina, which has been part of their family for generations. But the tobacco industry is under threat. Vette has been offered money to sell the farm, but will she be able to persuade Hearon it's the right thing to do?
This is the story of a 70-year-old farmer's loss of faith in himself and his way of life. Seeped in the magic and dialect of the American Deep South, it paints a panoramic picture of a changing America in turmoil.
