"The Simple Life Of Noah Dearborn is a 1999, straight to video drama about a man named Noah Dearborn who lead a simple life as a talented carpenter. He touched the lives of everyone he came into contact with. But when a group of people offer to purchase his land for $300,000 from him, he declines. The company trying to buy his land accuses him of being insane. Noah must be evaluated by a professional psychiatrist to keep his land and stay out of a hospital. "The Secret Life Of Noah Dearborn" is a film that shows that it is still possible to be courageous and "simple," even when things go wrong.
