B.L. McCutcheon (Brian Keith) is a Nebraska farmer forced to move in with his daughter and her family when the bank forecloses on his farm. He doesn't care much for his son-in-law and disapproves with the couple's child-rearing skills.
As bad weather approaches, the family ponders the future of their crops, the future of their livestock, and even whether to sell the property and move to L.A. They spend quality time in the cellar as the storm hits. Once the tornado passes, we discover that the storm has obliterated the outhouse while leaving the family's house, barn intact, and the crops had been harvested in time. So the family decides to retain the property and continue their rural way of life.
