Tim Grimm and Jan Lucas, both successful film, TV and stage actors, discuss their transisition from the LA entertainment scene to coming "back home" to Indiana, where they purchased a farm, raised a family and developed successful musical careers. Tim and Jan offer beautiful musical performances of some of Tim's great folk songs.
