Clark Davis' (Wes Brown) adventurous dreams of seeing the world are put into jeopardy after he and a friend start a fight which damages a local cafe. Through a plea deal with the Sheriff (Jere Burns) and cafe owner Millie (Nancy McKeon), Clark works off his sentence as a farmhand for the Barlow sisters, Ellen (Julie Mond) and Cassie (Abigail Mavity). Older sister Ellen doesnt understand Cassie's friendly nature with Clark; she agreed to the Sheriffs' offer only because the farm has become too much to maintain alone. Clark is slowly winning Ellen over, but suddenly suffers a traumatic head injury in a fall. After Ellen nurses him back to health, her former fiance returns to win her back. Will Clark travel on or stay behind where love begins?
