In a dusty small town lawyer's office, 83 year old Minnesota farmer, Hap Anderson, signs on the dotted line selling the farm he's worked for over 60 years. Adrift in his new life, he receives an invitation to his WW2 reunion in California and enlists his retired award-winning insurance salesman brother, now living the good life in Arizona, to join him. Reviving their 40 year old Winnebago, they plan a trip of a lifetime that hinges on swinging through Nebraska to pick up an 'old flame' who barely knew him and doesn't know he's coming.
As the journey progresses Hap begins to question his life's accomplishments and purpose.
With understated Midwestern humor, 'Farmer Of The Year' blends the comedy and drama of life into a deceptively simple story of aging, transition and resilience.
"It's the kind of movie you want to see more than once to get everything. The movie had a different feel than any other movie I've seen. I feel like I've taken a step back and can see funny quirky things we don't normally notice ourselves doing. I just bought a ticket to see it again!" - Bruce Meyer, Florence, Minnesota
"Fabulous funny, sad, heartwarming beautiful movie." - Julie Lund Zimmeth, Minneapolis, Minnesota
