Ron Hansen (screenplay), Jim Shepard (screenplay) In the 1850s in the state of New York, Abigail began the new year on a country farm where she lived with her husband Dyer. While Abigail believes that the year will come through her articles in the magazine, we experience a sharp contrast between her stoic and thoughtful manner and her disclosure of complex emotions. Spring is introduced and Abigail meets Tallie, an emotionally cordial and passionate newcomer who rents a neighboring farm with her husband Finney. The two join a trial relationship and fill a void in their lives that they didn’t know existed.
