Wande Fleischer and her family are German immigrants new to the town of Victoria, Texas. They meet the Morgan family shortly after arriving, and Wande becomes fast friends with Marion, much to the dismay of her brother Jud. Jud Morgan dislikes the new community of Germans that have invaded Texas. He decides to take a stand against them, even though he feels oddly drawn to Wande.
