Tagline The future was stirring in the land... and in her heart.
The film centers around a family of Swedish immigrants in Nebraska around the turn of the 20th century. The family's father dies and leaves the family farm to his daughter. She does her best to make the farm work when many others are giving up and leaving.
Much of the filming was done on location in and around Johnstown, in northern Nebraska. Many of the buildings used are still in use today and retain the board sidewalks seen in sections of the film. Also some of it was filmed in Clarkson Nebraska in the northeast part of the state. There, the filiming was done at the city's library, which is now the city's office, and a small farmhouse north of town.
