Fulfilling their patriotic duty in the north of England on a beautiful farm, Helena tries to convince her sister Lillian, that they should leave the Women's Land Army for a better assignment elsewhere. Lillian, however, remains stubborn and refuses to go despite the racism and discrimination they have had to endure. Meanwhile fellow Land Girl Elizabeth is becoming increasingly resentful at the sisters' presence on the farm. She enlists help from Sarah to devise a plan that will get the sisters to leave. Sarah has her reservations but still helps Elizabeth. The tension between the four women begins to grow until Elizabeth makes a decision that changes everything.
