89-year-old New Brunswicker Craig Morrison runs into problems with the system when he sets out to build a more suitable house for his wife Irene who is starting to lose her memory. When he attempts to use the methods his shipbuilder father taught him, Craig gets on the wrong side of an overzealous government inspector, who finds everything about the project unacceptable, including the wood that Craig has milled from his own trees. As Irene's illness worsens, Craig rushes to finish the house, which leads to him going to court and facing a jail sentence. Now it's time for Craig to take a final stand.
