In 1907 Wisconsin, 17 year old Marie Reehs is determined: she will not marry a violent man, as did her mother and grandmother before her. Day after day, Marie toils at the local laundry, watched by an older man who wants to claim her for his own. At first, it seems that Marie's passionate love affair with a charismatic young man will lead her to freedom, but she soon realizes that she too may have inherited the Reehs women's dark family curse.
