Synopsis
Three-part documentary in which filmmaker David Sutherland examines the marriage of Juanita and Darrel Buschkoetter, a young farm couple in rural Nebraska, who tell their story in their own words. Part 1 recounts the story of Juanita and Darrel's romance and their emotional struggles, which have pushed their marriage to the brink. In Part 2, the camera focuses on the rhythms of everyday life on the Buschkoetters' farm. Juanita cleans houses while trying to get a college degree. In Part 3, Darrel has to go to work for another farmer to make enough money to feed his family; the stress and exhaustion cause him to explode. Juanita takes their three daughters and leaves for a week. Darrel undergoes counseling, and two months later the marriage is miraculously transformed. He becomes the at-home parent, farming and caring for his three daughters; Juanita, who has earned a college degree, works for an insurance company. The Buschkoetters save their farm and rediscover the love that holds them together.
