Storyline

Without a word of explanation, on the day before his wedding Jacob Hansen walks away, leaving Maddy, his bride-to-be; his father; brother Dan; and the family farm he was to inherit. Twenty years later Jake returns to find Dan and Maddy married and running the farm with the help of their children and his father. Jacob's father is overjoyed at the return of his son, but feelings of bitterness arise between the brothers, and the complex feelings and needs of each family member come into play. Battling a mysterious blight that threatens to destroy the farm, they struggle to understand their fears, overcome the past and express their love. Written by Schleppy

Dairy farming movie
4 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

Filmed and set in Manitoba, Canada. Jacob was supposed to marry Madeline, but he runs off and becomes a hotel/club piano player and singer. So Madeline marries his brother Daniel. Twenty years later, Jacob comes back home. Jacob's father is overjoyed to see the prodigal son return. Daniel's dairy farm has a stray voltage problem which even kills dairy cows. A new power line is needed, but the hydro (power) company won't do anything about it. The family eventually cuts off the power and uses home-generated power. Daniel's oldest son gets frustrated. This movie is more about dairy farming than harvesting, but I guess it makes a nice metaphor or something. What the family needs is an old-fashioned barn raising deal to build a new power line. Why won't the power company solve the problem? But remember that stray voltage is a problem in real life.
