After her coal mining father passes away at any early age, Sheila and her family struggle to survive under the direction of a mother who can often provide little more than beans and cornbread for long stretches of time. As the family weathers tragedy after tragedy, the siblings believe they have seen it all until Sheila must face the most difficult trial of all, Lou Gehrigs disease. Experience the true meaning of what it means to struggle and triumph as a family in this tale of how one group of siblings must come of age in the grip of poverty.
