"Here the story is told of how, through co-operation, the farmers of Western Canada have brought stability into their occupation. The film depicts a divergence of opinion between father and son over different ethods of marketing their grain. It also illustrates the work of the Wheat Pool, which helps eliminate day-to-day fluctuations in grain prices, thus contributing to farmers' security."
