This is a a bilingual play about early pioneer settlers on the St-Francis River in 1810. The first European family to settle in the Richmond area, the Cushing family, settled in 1798. In the years since their arrival they were been joined by ever-growing numbers of homesteaders. As the play begins, it is the day before the Cushings have planned a barn raising.
