Synopsis

When she was only 17, Virginia Farley (Patricia Wettig, TV’s Brothers & Sisters) ran as far—and as fast—as she could from her small Kansas hometown. Now a big-time copywriter with a family and a failed marriage, her city life is much different than the rural upbringing she experienced. But when her father suffers a heart attack, Virginia returns to the wide open spaces of Kansas to help with the family farm and convince him to give it a rest. When he doesn’t, Virginia and her sister become the co-owners of the entire operation—a responsibility that’s going to make it harder than ever to leave home.

Dove Review

Ginny Farely returns home following her father’s heart attack and she learns the true meaning of friendship and responsibility. Her husband divorces her while she goes through a very difficult time in her life. But the people who gather together and stand beside her help see her through and get her crop in.

Despite some good themes this film contains several drinking scenes including an adult who offers a drink to a child and it is condoned and there are no consequences following. In addition, there are 14 G or OMG comments and one “Good Lord” and this is a bit excessive for our conservative Dove viewers. Therefore, we are unable to award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this movie.
