A decidedly unconventional family, the Grodins lead a secluded, self-sufficient existence in rural New Mexico. Bo is a restless young girl. Her father, Charley, is mired in depression, and her mother, Arlene, provides for the family by tending to their garden. Their simple, though not trouble-free, lives are disrupted when an Internal Revenue Service agent arrives, asking questions about their unusual lifestyle.
