    Thomas Reid lives a solitary life on the fringes of mainstream society, farming the lands passed down to him by his father and his grandfather before. Beyond the walls of his 17th century farm looms a vast American factory - vital to the national economy but long an unsettling presence in Thomas' life. Suspicious of intrusion, Thomas does not welcome the State agents who come to forcibly purchase his house and lands.
