About the show

During the Great Depression, a family of Georgian farmers struggled as their once profitable tobacco crop slowly dies. Jeeter Lester, the father, lives in squalor with his wife Ada, their two children, Dude and Ellie May, and his mother. When the family learns that the house and property are now owned by the bank, Jeeter is given a chance to earn money so that they may keep living there, but he refuses. Desperate to save their family, the once-proud father makes sacrifices that will impact their lives in ways unimaginable.
