What's worth fighting for?

It was a different time…and a different pace. This heartwarming film tells the tale of a close-knit family and their remarkable Mississippi summer of 1970.
With the help of their friends, Stu and Lidia Simmons are determined to build the ultimate treehouse, a place of wonder and magic. The father Stephen, a newly returned Vietnam vet, has equally high hopes to rebuild his life and fulfill his family's dreams.
