On a cold winter day a mysterious stranger shows up at the Witting Farm. He is John Witting, the father of Jacob Witting who abandoned Jacob and his mother when Jacob was little. Jacob is very hurt by what his father did to him many years ago that he won't have anything to do with him to which his wife Sarah must do everything to bring Jacob and his father back together again for the sake of Jacob and his three children Anna, Caleb, and Casey who love their grandfather very much.

This movie stars Jack Palance and Christopher Walken as father and son. Both have played 1-time only Batman villains responsible for the "birth" of original Batman villains. Palance was in weekly series, Batman (1966) where he was responsible for The Joker. Walken was in Batman Returns (1992) where he was responsible for Catwoman. See more »
This film was the perfect ending to the Sarah Plain and Tall trilogy. Once again, there was more conflict, but this time, Sarah takes a back seat, and the movie is more or less about Jacob. It has a very good message about forgiveness, which is something I think is very important.
The family has grown a little to include a child between Sarah and Jacob, and Anna and Caleb are considerably more grown up than in the previous movies. Once more, the casting was terrific, and the characters were just as endearing as always, although I must say that I found it rather odd that everytime something significant would happen, Sarah would be right in the middle of it--or close by. She was nosier than usual in this movie, but it suited her--as did her sometimes dry sense of humor, directed at various comments made by members of her family. If you watched the first two movies, you should definately see this one, but remember to watch them in order because otherwise some things won't make much sense.
