A great shame this isn't on VHS or DVD
23 July 2003 | by (Ithaca, NY) – See all my reviews

I saw this when it came out 25 years ago and have never forgotten it. I would own it, if available.

Tyler is a young Canadian farmer, perhaps 21. His mother suffers badly from arthritis, especially in the Canadian winters. Speculators have made an offer for the farm that Tyler's Dad finds hard to refuse since it means they could winter in Florida and spare Tyler's Mom pain.

Tyler has always dreamed of owning the farm someday, a dream he shares with his best friend, who will inherit an adjoining farm. Now he must do everything he can to raise the money, a tough sell in a time when the family farm has become economically difficult to justify to the bank.

The acting is excellent, the story believable and the emotional impact truly profound.
