After buying the farm he has desired since early adolescence and marrying his high school sweetheart, he easily settles into the quiet, slow-paced country lifestyle. Jerrys intensions are to farm the land and raise his children in the same rural atmosphere as his father and grandfather had. Having tasted life in the fast lane, his greatest desire is the simplest of all, to provide for his family while taking the time to sit on the porch and rock in a chair as he watches the world rush past.
Brutal reality awaits him when the Vanlair, a small Russian religious clan, migrates to America, purchases land bordering Jerrys farm and builds a complex for their followers. The Vanlair are intent on building a safe environment for their community by driving the farmers from their land and assuming control of the county.

Jerry isnt alone. With the help of a small group of former CIA and government officials who provide needed supplies and his best friend who is married to a Russian born woman. Jerry is able to unite the county as they fight for their families, homes, and town.
