Inspired by a Pearl S. Buck novel, this inspiring drama follows the many ups and downs in the lives of Chinese farmers Wang Lung (Paul Muni) and O-Lan (Luise Rainer). Though the couple initially finds success farming their land, their fortunes decline, and lean times follow. Later, when Wang Lung and O-Lan once again reap bountiful harvests and raise a family, the presence of the beautiful young Lotus (Tilly Losch) complicates their lives further.
