Kyle lives in North Dakota with his parents and three brothers. They farm with his grandparents and several uncles and aunts and their families. We see how they harvest grain with massive harvesting machines, make repairs and take grain to the towering storage elevators in the nearby town of about 100 people.
Kristin and her family are African Americans, living in Wilmington, Delaware, the second smallest State in the entire United States. We sit in for a myriad of her activities, which include a ballet class, basketball practice, a computer class, church services and a Christmas concert, where Kristin plays the flute. We visit her classes at school, her father at work, as director of a social service agency and her mother, as she teaches physical education to elementary school children.
