Program Description

Aired 1973

Tom Richards, an illiterate farmer, believes he may have found happiness in the form of a girl who answers his ad in the paper. She comes to work on his farm and, for a brief period, the two seem to be brought together. Set in the 1930's, the deceptively simple story shows how expectations can be cruelly destructive.
