In this adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by John Steinbeck, the Joad family has lost everything: their home, livelihood, dignity and nearly all hope for a better future. With what little remains, the family leaves the Dust Bowl fields of Oklahoma for the fertile lands promised in California. Expecting the land of milk and honey, the Joads face further disillusionment, exploitation, and a lack of resources at the hands of big business and corrupt authorities.
