Harvest Party Scandal
National Geographic introduces the King Colony and their way of life. Today, unlike their ancestors, they have sophisticated farming equipment, and are constantly evolving and struggling to find balance yet preserve their treasured traditions. Harvest is the most important time of year for the Hutterite colony. The Hutterite men are disappointed that their cows are underweight and won't bring in as much income this year, but despite the setback, the colony prepares for its annual Harvest Party. Meanwhile, Claudia is intent on meeting a boy whom the colony disapproves of. Concerned about her daughter's behavior, Bertha dredges up tragic memories of her late husband, who battled with depression and eventually committed suicide. Like any mother, Bertha worries that Claudia shares the same restlessness as her late husband and is heading down the wrong path. Later, when things don't go Claudia's way, she rebels and does something to shock the colony at the Harvest Party.
