In 1910, Bill, a Chicago steel worker accidentally kills his supervisor. He flees to the Texas panhandle with his lover Abby and little sister Linda, where they work harvesting wheat in the fields of a stoic farmer. When Bill learns that the Farmer is ill and has less than a year to live, he encourages Abby to accept the man's attentions. The Farmer and Abby marry, and she and her "siblings" live in the big house, waiting for the Farmer to die, so Abby can inherit, and the three of them live happily ever after. But love seems to be a cure-all: the Farmer seems to be improving--and Abby is no longer seeing this as a marriage of convenience. From a landscape of panoramic vistas, vivid colors, and rich textures comes a timeless American idyll and a gritty evocation of turn-of-the-century labor

Trama: Francia, fine del Settecento. In una foresta dell'Aveyron, alcuni contadini catturano un ragazzo di circa dodici anni cresciuto allo stato selvaggio. Condotto a Parigi in un istituto per sordomuti, il ragazzo - che ovviamente sa emettere solo grugniti e sembra non rispondere agli stimoli sonori - viene esaminato dal dottor Itard. Constatata l'assoluta incapacità del giovane di comunicare e di comprendere, le autorità decidono di trasferirlo in un istituto per malati di mente. Itard, invece, si oppone: egli ha compreso che non ha a che fare con un ritardato e ottiene di poterlo ospitare nella sua casa alla periferia di Parigi dove, a contatto con la natura e aiutato dalla sua governante, incomincia un lungo percorso di recupero di Victor - questo il nome che viene dato al piccolo selvaggio - al mondo civile. Il primo obiettivo del dottor Itard è quello di restituire al ragazzo l'uso del linguaggio: a questo scopo il medico esegue con successo una serie di esperimenti che gli permettono di articolare alcune profonde riflessioni sulla natura dell'uomo. Un giorno, tuttavia, Victor fugge nella foresta. Tornerà da Itard, forse già incapace di riprendere la vita selvaggia: la sua educazione continuerà
