Stavros Karas is a recent older widower with two children and a budding fig farm. He sends a request to the old country, Greece, to ask for a wife to be sent to help him. He has told them he has a nice home and a working fig farm. He is hoping for an older woman to take care of the home and his kids but ends up with a young attractive Eleni Niarcos who attracts the attention of his neighbor's son. Realizing he lied to Eleni's father and her, Stavros is not sure he should marry her or that she will want to marry an older poor man like him. Stavros asks for water from his neighbor for his new fig plants but the issue erupts in controversy and a shooting. The Shiloh folks try to help keep the peace and Stavros decide whether to marry Eleni.
