Summary A man of few words, Gaby manages his family's farm--Buchard & Sons--on his own, despite his advancing age. With no actual sons to speak of and his two grown daughters living far away in the big city, he spends his days tending to the animals and land that surround him, eschewing modern technology and most social interactions. When his eldest daughter, Marie, appears at the family homestead to share news that she's finally getting divorced and in desperate need of money in order to keep the home where she and her children live, Gaby's quiet life begins to unravel. In an effort to tend to his children much the way he steadfastly tends to his farm, he'll be forced to make sacrifices he never intended for the sake of those closest to him.
