Exploring themes of race and police relations, The Farm brings together a Japanese-American plastic surgeon who marched against the Viet Nam War and bombed corporate targets in the seventies and a proud combat medic from Afghanistan who was wrongfully discharged and holds a grudge against all police.
Antwon, an African-American, is ready to fire against the police as they guarded a protest march opposing excessive police force. He has a last-minute change of heart and calls to warn of the impending attack from his conspirators. He then flees to Doctor Robert Kimura's Farm under the guise of joining his brother, David, for the Thanksgiving Weekend. David, also black, is the potential fiancé of Natalie, one of Robert's twin daughters.
Hiding from the authorities is not the worst of it. Lives are in danger when Wil and Troy, hunting and drinking buddies who are closeted alt-right racists, take exception to having David in the family. Wil is Robert's long estranged son from a brief relationship he had during his wild youth and is twice the age of the twins. Trouble digs in deeper when Wil lusts after Natalie, his own half-sister. On a hunting trip Troy, a sheriff's deputy, is mauled by a bear, and would almost rather die than be rescued by Antwon, a black suspected cop killer.
The Farm, explores hot family dynamics charged by history and current events.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
