About

Overview

In 1924, South Carolina and the region are still recovering from the boll weevil infestation that devastated the land and the economy. Gertrude must choose to save her four daughters from starvation or die at the hands of an abusive husband. Retta, who is navigating the harsh world as a first-generation freed slave, is still employed by the Coles family, who once owned hers. Annie Coles, matriarch of that family, must come to terms with the terrible truth that has ripped them apart. Three women, who seemingly have nothing in common, unite to stand up to the terrible injustices that plague their small town and find strength in the bond that ties women together.
