Barney (Jack Klugman) owns the last working farm in Manhattan. For various reasons, city officials have decided to close it down. A special event is planned to raise awareness and money to keep it running. Based on a true story, the original title of this film was P.O.N.Y. (a double entendre alluding to a metaphoric old pony that gave kids pony rides at the farm and to Poor Old New York - the heartless city that would close down a long standing and beloved neighborhood institution).
Noah had his Ark. Barney has his Pony Farm. The difference is that when it rained on the Pony Farm it rained bills, debts and harassment from the landlord.
