Northern Lights

November 17, 1978

In rural North Dakota during World War I, struggling farmer Ray Sorenson (Robert Behling) decides to become an activist for the burgeoning Nonpartisan League, a labor union attempting to organize the region’s farmers against the railroads and banks which are consistently undercutting their livelihood with unfair payments. But many of the farmers don’t trust the union either, fearing that it’s too socialistic, and afraid that the banks and railroads will retaliate harshly.
