The year is 1929. The locals all take notice when Justine Phillips arrives in town, a beautiful woman with a shameful secret. She finds love but her marriage is soured by infertility. After nine years of trying to conceive, she pays a visit to a witch doctor who her mother-in-law swears is the devil's disciple. Now, she must make a life changing decision.
