    Two families. One reality TV show. Who will survive three months as an 1840’s frontier family on the Minnesota prairie? Will it be the urbane Roubidouxs from Minneapolis? Or the no-nonsense, live-off-the-land Monroes, from the North Shore? Soon enough, both families find they’ve more to overcome than just the elements. It’s an adventure (all caught on confession cam!) fraught with laughable predicaments and harrowing incidents. And when one family reconnects with their Dakota culture, it leads to startling revelations for all, inspiring the true spirit of generosity.
