Patch of Dirt introduces us to Joe Oliver, a womanizing thirty-year old drifter, who meets Frank Hill, a sixty-five year old, wounded Vietnam Veteran and his twenty-five year old wife Rita. Frank offers Joe a job, which he reluctantly accepts and is duped into becoming part of their plan to sire a child the impotent Frank, is powerless to conceive. Rita puts Joe through a series of tests to determine if he will be the right biological father for their child. Much to Frank’s consternation Rita falls for Joe and jeopardizes their plan.
