Who will inherit the family farm? And, what will they do with it once it is theirs? These are interesting questions about the critical issue of land transition.

In the drama “Map of My Kingdom,” character Angela Martin, a lawyer and mediator in land transition disputes, shares stories of how farmers and landowners she has worked with over the years approached their land successions. Land is the thread that binds all of the stories together.”
