Royal (Fred Ward) and Ellie Thompson (Lise Hilboldt) have a small farm in 1890s Texas, but the land isn't yielding and the Thompsons face financial ruin until Olaf (Stellan Skarsgård), a Swedish immigrant relocating to Texas from North Dakota, appears at the farm seeking work. With his hard work and farming skills, Olaf transforms the Thompsons' farm into a rich, valuable piece of land, allowing Royal to take the credit and become very wealthy on Olaf's labor.
