Paul Kostner searches for his roots and a genuine self-image when he decides to move back to the land in a rural community of total strangers. He abandons the social life of a faculty and small city for a society of farmers and local businesses. He leaves the company of a beautiful woman bound for administrative success and bonds to a wounded farmstead he struggles to heal. In the process he hopes to reconnect with a teenage daughter, sobriety, and his soul.
The journey is hard and heartbreaking, but he finds gentle mentors among the strong-willed country folk who teach him the many things he needs to know to live the simple life. From construction and gardening to logging and bulldozing, Paul learns by taking chances and listening to the old hands.
As his love of a dream is transformed into a love for the land and community, another kind of love dares to smile.
