The story details a community's fight to save a once-luxurious housing development. Brookmont Farms, a 544-townhome complex in rural Bear, Delaware, fell into ruin after its builders experienced financial trouble and the property became part of Section Eight subsidized rent programs. The fight of Pastor Steve Hare, police and social services, and the problem of absentee landlords are explored.
