Ernie and Genie must spend the summer with their grandparents on their farm in rural Virginia while their parents work on their marriage. While at first reluctant to be without WiFi and cell phones for the entire summer, the boys soon discover they have much to learn about the hard work of farm life, begin to unravel the mystery of their grandfather and his complex relationship with their father, and play an integral role in helping their family heal after a long-standing rift.
