Informed that her mentally ill mother is growing increasingly unstable, Jessie (Kim Basinger) steels herself for the hard road ahead. Upon arriving at the scenic Southern island where she grew up, Jessie uncovers a series of dark secrets about her family past while fighting her attraction to a handsome Benedictine monk. In the weeks that follow Jessie experiences a profound transformation that affects every aspect of her life, and finally reveals the true nature of her being.
