Marion Doyle’s family farm is in the red and her mother Noreen is struggling with her new identity as a widow after the mysterious death of her husband, Pat. Marion plans to rekindle the mother-daughter relationship by moving Noreen into assisted living nearby to her home in the city but Noreen is adamant she is staying put. When activist Jennifer Young inserts herself into their lives, hoping to use Pat’s death as ammunition against more wind turbines in the area, Marion is morally opposed to her agenda. But if Marion helps to convince Noreen that staying on the farm is dangerous to her health, she might finally win her mother’s love.
