A harrowing trip to California from Indiana, in an old rundown bus, reveals Marcella's night blindness when she misses a turn into a gas station. The adventure continues only to discover that settling down in California is not a good idea. The return to Indiana wreaks of housing problems because of the family's size. An innovative idea to mask the family's size works until the truth is discovered. The eviction is resolved by living in Grandpa Harry's now empty house. While on his deathbed, Grandpa Harry confesses to Marcella of his Indiana escapades during the great Depression, the result of which will change many lives.
