Bill Henrickson operates a thriving Heimwerkermarkt in Salt Lake City. Since polygamy in Utah today is both illegal according to the teaching of there dominant Church of Jesus Christ of Latter -day Saints will be officially refused, he must keep this aspect of his private faith secret at great expense. Bill is married to three women: the well-organized " chief wife " Barbara ( Jeanne Tripplehorn ), the insincere and shopaholic Nicki ( Chloë Sevigny ) and the cheerful and somewhat naive Margene ( Ginnifer Goodwin ). The women live in three adjacent houses whose plots are connected to each other on the back. This family includes seven children.
Bill's second wife Nicki is the daughter of self-proclaimed prophet Roman Grant ( Harry Dean Stanton ) who heads a cult-like splinter Mormon Church and is involved in various shady dealings. Bill is on this compound ( fenced area ) called Juniper Creek grew up, but was chased away as a 14- year-old Grant. His younger brother and his parents (played by Grace Zabriskie and Bruce Dern ) still live there. Again and again there will be a conflict between the "modern" polygamist Bill who successfully lives in the outside world, and his fundamentalist community of origin.
