Sarah Isaacs can read, do basic math and bake bread by age six When she is advanced by two grades in school her classmates think "gifted" means she'll bring them presents. Her extraordinary intelligence stands in direct and odd contrast to her childlike mother, Martha, who cannot tie her own shoes, let alone attend the PTA like other mothers. Gramma Isaacs steers Sarah, Martha and the family apple orchard with the same no-nonsense attitude. She expects hard work and quiet from her charges. When Sarah continues to question the way their unusual family operates, she enters a long stand-off with Gramma which buries their house in silence and unease until all the answers are finally laid out on the kitchen table.
