Jessica (Angela Lansbury) is off to Jamaica, there to visit an old friend living on a sprawling plantation. No sooner has she arrived than Jessica is plunged into family intrigue, stemming from the decision by the plantation heir to wed the daughter of an Obeah priest. This not only dashes the hopes of the family merging with another prosperous Jamaican plantation clan, but it also leads to murder--apparently the fulfillment of an ancient voodoo curse! Musical stage star Shani Wallis makes a rare American TV appearance in this episode.
