Peggy Stewart and Almarío Santiago Lopez are brought together by desperation. Because of her husband's cancer, Peggy desperately needs help on their dairy farm in Upstate NY. Almarío desperately leaves Mexico to find work as an undocumented migrant. Language challenges and Peggy's prejudices make initial encounters difficult. Almarío rapidly becomes a valued worker and trusted friend. As Peggy's feelings grow for Almarío, she learns about the lives of undocumented workers and her own life as well. Issues and themes presented are timely and timeless.
