German immigrant and farm wife Hulda Klager possesses only an eighth-grade education -- and a burning desire to make something beautiful. What begins as a hobby to create an easy-peeling apple for her pies becomes Hulda's driving passion. It's a time-consuming interest in plant hybridization that puts her at odds with her family and community, as she challenges the early 20th-century expectations for a simple housewife.
Through the years, seasonal floods continually threaten to devastate her Woodland, Washington orchard and gardens, and a series of family tragedies cause even Hulda to question her focus. In a time of practicality, can one person's simple gifts of beauty make a difference?
