There's nothing Oklahoma farmer Henry Mink won't do for his family—even turn to crime out of desperation. With his daddy dead, Henry's the man of the house for his mother and four younger siblings. No rain in the summer of 1933 brings more bad news. When the local banker wants the mortgage paid, Henry can't come up with the money but if he doesn't, the Minks will be homeless.Jobs are scarce so he decides to follow Pretty Boy Floyd's lead and rob a bank but his gal, Mamie Logan, doesn't think much of the idea. Neither does Henry's kid brother, Eddie but there aren't any other options. One bank heist isn't enough and an unexpected near tragedy brings Henry home with a need for more money. Things get trickier and more dangerous by the day but he's sure one more robbery will put them sitting pretty.Life, however, seldom goes as planned and his desperate efforts will either fulfill his destiny—or destroy it forever.
