The Green Promise
A mule-stubborn farmer is determined to avoid modern technology and nearly destroys what is left of his family in this moving drama. The farmer is saddled with raising his four kids alone and insists on being ruler of the roost in every way. He steadfastly refuses any talk of modern technology when it comes to farming. When his oldest daughter gets a suitor and his youngest tries to join the 4-H club, the father nearly goes on the rampage. He eventually is forced to change his tune when he is injured and unable to work. While recovering, his eldest daughter takes over and begins using some of the new techniques. Sure enough, the farm becomes a success and the father finally sees the light and mends his ways, bringing pastoral happiness to his home. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
