In 1850, in the Oregon Territory, the provincial farmer Adam Pontipee comes to the town to trade supplies aud find a wife.

When he meets the strong hard worker Milly, he proposes to her. Milly agress with Adam and marries him, expecting to have her orn place with her husband. However, when they arrive in the distant farm, she learns that Adam is the eldest of seven unsophisticated and rude brothers.

Milly educates the brothers, teaching them hygiene, good manners and how to win somebody’s heart. In the annual town picnic, Milly, Adam and his six brothers go to the party and each of his brothers fall in love with a girl, However they have to return to the loneliness of their farm.

In the winter, Adam tells his brothers about “The Sobbin’ Women, when the Roman men had abducted wives for themselves. He travels with his brothers to the town and they kidnap their beloved girls.

When they cross a gorge, they provoke a snow avalanche and block the narrow passage. However, Milly keeps the girls in the house and sends Adam and his brothers to the barn. But until the spring, when the passage will be open again, many things happen in the farm with Milly, Adam, his brothers and their “brides”.
