Generations come and go like water flowing down a river. A continous cycle of life creates an ever-changing cast of characters on stage for their brief performance. The places people live, work, love and die may be more enduring, but contrasted to history, they too are fleeting. In the end, all that remains of people and places are the stories told by those who follow. What is your story going to be?
Life in depression-era California has always been difficult for Raquel. When she must flee her drunken stepfather’s abuse, the young woman finds herself without a home or family. Raquel finds new hope with her husband near the oilfield town of Taft, California, as she adjusts to her pretentious mother-in-law.
In the midst of the Great Depression, tragedy strikes the family. Raquel and her mother-in-law are forced to return to a drought-plagued farm in Oklahoma. Raquel’s hard-luck experiences in the squatters’ camps of the San Joaquin Valley proves valuable as the women struggle to find their way home while adapting to their new realities. On their journey, the two women discover genuine love requires sacrifice, but can be rewarded with uncompromising loyalty and a second chance at happiness.
