Listen up, folks! Get ready for a wild ride through the treacherous landscapes of Kalteis's lightning-fast crime caper, as we join Sonny and Clara Myers in their desperate struggle on a Kansas farm during the bleak 1930s. This is a time when even the Lord seems to have turned away, leaving their land dry, barren, and worthless. To make matters worse, a swarm of greedy bankers is swooping down, trying to snatch away the homes of struggling farmers like Sonny and Clara. As if that weren't enough, their own marriage is hanging by a thread.
Now, faced with a pivotal choice, Sonny and Clara find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place. They can either endure the harsh realities of their crumbling land or give in to the pressure and join the exodus of farmers heading to California. Clara is all for escape, but Sonny, stubborn as ever, refuses to abandon their beloved family farm. With tension mounting, Clara impulsively hops into their battered old truck and sets off towards the west without him.
But fear not, my friends, for this is just the beginning of a thrilling adventure filled with twists and turns. Left behind on the barren farm, Sonny is determined to reunite with Clara and bring back the glory days they once knew. And so, fueled by desperation and a burning desire for revenge, Sonny hatches a audacious scheme to not only save his land but also stick it to those crooked bankers. Under the cover of chaos caused by a rainmaker hired by the conniving mayor, who promises to wash away everyone's troubles, Sonny sets his plan into motion.
With a dash of lawlessness and a sprinkle of audacity, Sonny dives headfirst into a world of deception and cunning. A world where loyalty hangs by a thread and no one is to be trusted. How far will Sonny go to protect his family and secure a future for himself? Can he outsmart the relentless bankers and carve a path to prosperity? Or will his plans crumble like the dried-up earth beneath his feet?
