Annie is taken by her Grandparents from her family at an early age and is raised by them during the late 1950s. She is subjected to abuse at the hands of her Grandfather and, as an adolescent, is accused of improper behavior by members of the small town community in which they live. As a young woman of 23, she returns to her Grandparents’ home accompanied by her sister. The two sisters travel together in an effort to get to know one another. Her sister has also come along to lend Annie moral support as she breaks the news to her Grandparents that the man she plans to marry is of a different race. As the relationship between the two sisters develops, they confide in each other only to discover they share a disturbing family secret.
