Summary
A family returns to life on a farm and finds some answers to the paradox of living. The son, a young man, is having a crisis of faith when he begins to question the meaning of death. In searching through the questions of life and death, he discovers the wonder of living in the soaring beauty of one of nature's simplest creations
