Christensen's touching tale of loss and acceptance. Their trek across the American plains was a treacherous one, yet despite losing their two beautiful daughters in a tragic accident, Jed and his mourning wife, Martha, agree to raise young orphan Danny to the best of their abilities. As Martha's heart continues to drown in a perpetually welling tide of wistful memories, she finds herself unable show her new charge the love that she once showed her precious young girls.
