The adult Anne remembers how the widowed Louisa and family came to live with Louisa's mother-in-law, Amelia Thomas (Shirley MacLaine), a business woman who initially forced young Anne to live in her stables. The workers at the lumber mill Amelia owns revolt and Anne finds herself stuck in the middle: her father is one of the uprising's leaders.
