Set in early twentieth century Tennessee, this touching family film tells the story of a schoolteacher, Christy Huddleston, who learns lessons in loyalty, faith, and friendship when she attempts to force a small community into progressing with the outside world.
Considered an outsider by the residents of Cutter Gap, Christy is beloved as a teacher but begins to stir up conflict with her pleas for progress and stories of an outside world of skyscrapers and modern conveniences. When a free-spirited woman aviator crash lands in Cutter Gap, the attention is taken off Christy . . . until a series of robberies occur. Believing the thieves would never have come if it were not for the new road that Christy had built, the town unites against her. Faced with this series of setbacks, Christy contemplates returning home to North Carolina, but is persuaded to stay when she realizes she has much more to learn about her new friends . . . and herself!
