In 1954, the Korean conflict is a recent memory and discrimination via Mccarthyism endures. Fourteen-year old Will and his sister are to spend the summer at their Uncle Ed's farm with their aunt while he travels for work. Soon after Will and his sister's arrival, a group of Amish siblings arrive, per Uncle Ed's invite.
Then a 7 year-old Korean- American orphan with polio, Lilly Rose, is dropped off at the farm, per Uncle Ed, inciting the aunt to finally leave.
Six children live alone on the farm, facing harmful prejudices daily.
What sacrifices must Will make to help them survive?
Is he truly responsible for his father's' death as he believes?
