Two migrant field employees in California during the Great Depression – George Milton, an smart and cynical man; and Lennie Small, an ironically called guy of big stature and huge strength but limited mental abilities – come to a ranch near Soledad southeast of Salinas, California to "work up a stake". They hope to 1 day attain their shared think of settling down on their own piece of land.

At the ranch, the dream appears to move closer to fact.
