Blessing is an emotionally charged drama about a young woman's struggle to reconcile family expectations with personal dreams. Randi is a 23 year-old free-spirit milking cows on her family's Wisconsin farm. Her passion to go to the ocean is thwarted by her parents' wish that she take over the farm. Complicating her decision to leave are Clovis, her 10 year-old brother and confidant, and Lyle, the local astrologer/milkman who offers her homespun spiritual and a chance for escape. Ranging from intimate family drama to tragedy in its most classic form, Blessing is a heart-rending portrait of the love, rage and hope that bind family life.
