Prodigals' Road

Set on a farm in 1960, a widower is coerced into sheltering a mysterious, injured woman whose misfortune spreads to his land. When his crops begin to die, he comes to believe he's somehow being punished for helping her. As he gets set to evict her, one of the mythological Fates intervenes to show him the mystical connection between his land and the woman. From there he must decide whether to risk his farm and everything he has to save another.
