Batu, a young woman, lives in a future, developing society after an apocalypse. She heroically opposes performing a barbaric, self-mutilation ritual the high priest concocts to gratify his sexual fantasy and infuriates him, creating a lifelong enemy. Being strong-willed, she hates men seeing women as inferior and declares the council is depriving women of their rights and justice. She inflames the council telling them women should serve on the council. She rejects her father's choice of husband and marries a man of her own choosing. Can she continue her caustic opposition and not face retaliation? A disfiguring condition decimates Batu's beauty, triggering her transformation from a self-centered bully to a loving, caring woman. The death of Batu's husband and baby causes her to lose worth, as defined by law, and the village council decrees she is to be expelled from the village and face certain death.
