Ona, an eastern career woman, leaves her comfortable but
unexpectedly disquieting environment for a sabbatical on an
inherited Midwestern farm. Her life''s order is interrupted by
concern for her hired help, an orphaned teenager named Emma. Her
desire to mentor and improve this girl''s life is thwarted by the
largest landholder, B.G. Gretch, and his son, Bobby. B.G. loves his
fiefdom which he has prepared for this only child, a college
graduate. Bobby recognizes his father''s obsolescence yet still
loves the man. At the same time, he understands Ona, a woman from a
different place, and Emma, a girl he comes to love. B.G. will not
accept the cracker Emma and threatens to shoot himself if his
son''s relationship continues. The concluding actions are what
every woman from any time, place, or culture will understand.
However, they will only raise more questions for every man.
