ON HER OWN tells the story of Nancy Prebilich and her family as they struggle to save their fifth-generation farm during the Great Recession. When both of Nancy's parents suddenly pass away, Nancy, her sister, niece and nephews fight to stay afloat in the face of loss and financial instability. ON HER OWN represents what is happening all across the U.S. as houses are foreclosed, families are forced to move for purely economic reasons and small farms face ruthless competition from larger factory farms and land developers. Chronicling Nancy's personal journey over a five-year span, this extraordinary story explores the roles that history and ancestry play in our present-day lives, asking: what happens when the cost of preserving family heritage is the family itself?
