Synopsis

Setting: An American family farm.
August 1979-July 2980.

Through the story of a single family This Will All Be Yours looks at America’s transformation from an agricultural nation to an urban one along with the evolution from small family farms and their surrounding communities to large farms run as corporate enterprises amidst suburban sprawl.

These changes also accompanied a shift in the aspirations of young people who were previously expected or inclined to continue the family business but began wanting or needing to chart their own courses.

Despite being specifically about farming, it could be about the loss of any way of life that has been ongoing for several generations.
