Growing up in a rural farm community, Fay is deprived of a life that would be considered normal within today's society. Living in poverty with her family as share-croppers and working alongside Mexican day workers, she struggles with the harshness of life. She lives only to survive for another day. Meanwhile, she struggles to understand her family, who seem determined to survive when it is a choice between them or her, and the community folk whose behavior confuses her. With strength of will power and determination her triumphs will amaze you.
