The victim of lifelong abuse at the hands of his drunken father, surly 17-year-old Tod Dortmunder (Timothy Wead) comes to live with his grandparents in Walnut Grove. Wasting no time getting into trouble, Tod soon faces a jail term for stealing Charles' watch. Rather than heap more punishment on the battered boy, Charles (Michael Landon) allows Tod to work out his sentence on the Ingalls farm -- where the teenager comes face to face with kindness and affection for the first time in his life.
