In the year 1910, New Englander Sarah Wheaton (Glenn Close) answers an ad for a mail-order bride placed by Kansas farmer Jacob Witting (Christopher Walken), a widower rearing two children. She begins a 30 day trial period as their guest and enthusiastically assumes all motherly responsibilities. As the days pass, this lonely, motherless family gradually opens their hearts to Sarah and slowly comes to terms with their painful past. Their lives again become spontaneous and magical. Love and respect replace fear and distrust as they join together as a family.
