On Her Own tells the story of Nancy Prebilich and her family as they struggle to save their 5th generation farm during the Great Recession. Yet On Her Own is about more than just one family’s struggle to keep their land out of foreclosure. It represents what is happening all across the U.S. as houses are foreclosed, families are forced to move apart for purely economic reasons, and small farms face ruthless competition from large factory farms & land developers. On Her Own explores the roles history and ancestry play in our present-day lives, asking: what happens when the cost of preserving family heritage is the family itself?
