Awarded Best Screenplay at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival for a U.S. Narrative Feature film, Abundant Acreage Available deals with the question of legacy and ownership of land rights. A middle-aged brother and sister Jesse (Terry Kinney) and Tracy (Amy Ryan) are coping with their father’s recent death on their North Carolina tobacco farm when three mysterious strangers pay an unexpected visit. Claiming a right to the land that had been in their family for generations before, the three brothers camp out on the farm with no intention of leaving. Torn between their own grief and empathy for the three strangers, Jesse and Tracy try to resolve the underlying tension that continues to build in a stand-off between the two sets of siblings.
