Review: Set on a 1950s-1960s Montana dairy farm, Nate Chance comes home from school to find his father being put in an ambulance and his mother under suspicion for the gunshot wounds sustained by his father. Thus begins a long nightmare for the family. If Nate can just win first prize in the science fair, he'll win a trip to the town where his father is hospitalized. Maybe there he can get answers to his questions.
