Matt Ballot (Steve Cochran) is a recovering alcoholic and former bootlegger who has been away from his family for a long time. His wife Bess (Ann Sheridan) and their children Annie and Bud (Sherry Jackson and Richard Eyer) live on a farm that is struggling to make ends meet.

One day, Matt comes back home unannounced and finds out that his family has been struggling without him.

Matt wants to make up for lost time and take care of his family, but Bess is hesitant to trust him again.

Matt tries to find a job, but his reputation as a bootlegger precedes him, and he faces rejection at every turn. Meanwhile, Bess meets a young businessman named Will (Sonny Tufts) who wants to buy their farm. Will is persistent, and Bess starts to consider the idea of selling the farm and moving to the city.

However, Matt is determined to save their family farm and make things right with Bess. He starts to work on the farm, and with the help of their neighbor, Uncle Jed (Walter Brennan), he makes improvements that make the farm profitable again.
