The Great Depression has made them homeless, drifting around working from farm to farm with only one goal: get enough money for supper. A while back Ertie was s rodeo star, a hero for family and neighbors. After falling from a horse he got injured for life and his burning wish of everybody being proud of him shattered. His wife Bessie is a woman with strong will and courage. Her dream of one day living in a house, a home, is what keeps the family together. Jake, their son, has felt hunger and poverty all his life. His memories of a happy family are vague, but the dreams are strong. This is the story of a family with dreams, courage and a will of steel. Written by Anonymous

Trivia
2 November 2009 | by wordman2kSee all my reviews

I was an extra on this film along with several other members of a local community theater company from nearby Gilroy and Morgan Hill. During the parade scene in San Juan Bautista, the driver of the vintage tractor pulling the wagon of farmers was supposed to stop when surrounded by rioters. However, the driver, and owner of the beautifully restored John Deere, didn't seem to understand his roll and kept right on driving past the mark and out of the scene. After a couple of resets, Director Korty finally parked the wagon on it's spot. It should also be noted that there were children on the farmer's wagon in the initial scenes, but when the riot breaks out, the children are no longer present. The director did not want to take a chance on them getting hurt in the "riot."

The night scenes in the tent were actually filmed inside a warehouse.
