When Ruth Crisp marries Doctor Cleveland Bigham, she is unaware that the Bigham family has a penchant for killing anyone who crosses them. She makes this horrific discovery seven months later when her brother-in-law brutally lynches a young field hand. While Ruth’s in-laws conspire with her husband to conceal his brother’s guilt, she struggles between her role as a compliant Edwardian wife and her moral obligation to testify against the killer. Ruth knows the choices she must make may cost her marriage but can’t foresee the enormous price she will ultimately have to pay.
