Period religious/romantic drama about the pressures encountered by an incoming family into a religious township in New York state in the 1800s. As the Steed family tries to integrate into their new community of Palmyra, relations with townsfolk become strained when a hired help (Jonathan Scarfe) finds himself at the centre of a religious storm. Matters are worsened when two of the family's sons (Eric Johnson and Alexander Carroll) fall for the same daughter (Tiffany Dupont) of a local merchant (Jim Grimshaw), and wind up on either side of the religious divide. Trying to avoid the mounting tension, the family soon finds itself bound even closer to the town and having to question their own family loyalties.
