"American Value: Herb Dishman, China, TX" is the first episode of a short documentary series that investigates our cultural fascination with vanishing traditions. This episode tells the story of a Texas Rice farmer and his decision to carry on his family's tradition of fatherhood and working the land. Herb's story complicates the cultural stereotype of the American farmer through highlighting a journey that took him away from home and around the world, ultimately leading him to realize that his true calling is being back where his journey began.
