Peter and the Farm follows the memorable real life story of Peter Dunning, who is the proud proprietor of Mile Hill Farm, which sits on 187 acres in Vermont. The land's 38 harvests have seen the arrivals and departures of three wives and four children, leaving Peter with only animals and memories. The arrival of a film crew causes him to confront his history and his legacy, passing along hard-won agricultural wisdom even as he doubts the meaning of the work he is fated to perform. Haunted by alcoholism and regret, Peter veers between elation and despair, making this documentary a haunting look at a life lived and a life squandered.
