Three-Paragraph Synopsis: 

Noah Becker is a member of the German Afrika Korps captured in North Africa in 1943. His arduous journey across the Atlantic and America ends in a small Louisiana POW camp. Due to the severe manpower shortage, Noah and his fellow POWs are sent to work on local farms, and it is there where Noah meets Maggie Loewer.

Maggie is an older teenager on a hard-working family rice farm in Mowata, Louisiana.  Her family is German-American, and Maggie must fight through the prejudices, challenges, and difficulties of the American homefront during World War II.

During the 1944 rice harvest, Maggie and Noah’s lives collide, and the sparks fly.
