Amber Waves tells the story of the Olsons, a family of farmers in Kansas in the 1990s. As a drought and a debt crisis grow more serious, each family member deals with it in their own way. The family also has to contend with Homecoming, acorns on the lawn and constant stream of family photos. This moving and honest portrayal of rural life asks us the important question: When times get rough, what would you do for your family?
