Overview

1933. En las ruinas de lo que antaño fue una plantación de Mississipi, la anciana comadrona Gran Gran rememora su vida. La acción se remonta a 1847, a la trágica noche en que Granada, apenas un bebé, fue arrancada de los brazos de su madre para satisfacer el capricho de Amanda Satter_ eld, la esposa del amo, que acababa de perder a su única hija. Así, Granada se convierte en una esclava privilegiada: recibe las atenciones de la señora y se viste con ropas de la difunta niña. Pero a los doce años, la vida de esa niña dará un vuelco radical con la llegada de la vieja curandera Polly Shine. El amo Satter_ eld ha comprado a la vieja para que cure a los esclavos enfermos de una epidemia que está diezmando las plantaciones del sur. Y Polly, que ve en Granada un talento para la curación, le ofrece ser su ayudante. mpezará así para Granada una época nueva. Despojada de su envidiable posición en la casa, la niña se muestra reacia a aprender nada y pone a prueba la paciencia de la vieja maestra, quien no se rinde. La anciana revoluciona las condiciones de vida de los esclavos, los sana en cuerpo y alma, y va despojándoles de ese sentimiento de inferioridad que tanto daño ha hecho a su comunidad. Pero la suya será una lucha soterrada que encontrará enemigos incluso entre los de su propia raza, temerosos de cualquier cambio.
