The Night Women, sick of slavery, are planning a revolt against the slave masters on their 18th century Jamaican sugar plantation. The green-eyed group bands together, meeting regularly to plot the overthrow of their owners. That’s until Lilith is born, a girl the women believe has a mysterious power. As she ages, Lilith is taught to read and to understand the importance of a rebellion. But when she falls in love with Irish overseer Quinn, Lilith realizes what dire consequences a mutiny will cause for the plantation while trying to reconcile her urges with her upbringing.
