Mary Call (Julie Gholson) has promised her dying father to keep her brother and sisters together forever on the mountain, and never to take any help from strangers. She is determined to keep her word. No matter what. At first she is sure she can manage. Romey (Matthew Burril), Ima Dean (Helen Harmon), and Devola (Jan Smithers) help gather herbs to sell in town; the riches of the mountains will surely keep the family clothed and fed. But then winter comes, fast and furious, and Mary Call has to learn that the land where the lilies bloom is also a cruel and unforgiving place, and it may take more than a promise to keep her family together. Beautifully filmed on location, this is the story of one young Appalachian girl's desperate, resourceful, and sometimes very funny attempts to preserve the dignity and independence of her family in the face of frightening odds.
"The same producer and the same proud, warm feeling that made "Sounder" last year's best-loved film. A beautiful story for all ages."
