Harvey S. Potter is a genial if enigmatic newcomer to a drought-ravaged farming community who grows a bumper crop of colorful ballons in his field. At first, the townspeople come to believe the balloons are a sign of hope in troubled times. Everyone scrambles to buy their favorite color balloon and get a long-overdue lift in spirits. But grouchy old Wheezle Mayfield spreads the story that Potter has swindled them all, persuading the townsfolk to turn against Potter. Only 12-year-old Willow Johnson stands by her conviction that the balloons are real in this whimsical and compelling adaptation from the acclaimed children's book by Jerdine Nolan.
