    Summary: 
    In 1936, a young mother resting by the side of a road in Central California is spontaneously photographed by a woman documenting the migrant laborers who have taken to America's farms in search of work. Little personal information is exchanged, and neither woman has any way of knowing that they have produced what will become the most iconic image of the Great Depression. Mary, the migrant mother herself, emerges as a woman with deep reserves of courage and nerve, with private passions and carefully-guarded secrets. Vera Dare, the photographer wrestling with creative ambition, makes the choice to leave her children in order to pursue her work. Walker Dodge, a present-day professor of cultural history, discovers a family mystery embedded in the picture. A tale created from a brief moment in history, reminds us that although a great photograph can capture the essence of a moment, it only scratches the surface of a life.
