In 16th century France, legends are real, superstitions run deep, and witches are everywhere.
Fifteen-year old Agnes wants to be like Meme and learn the ways of nature to treat the sick. To the locals, Meme is a foreigner with walnut-colored skin and a Spanish accent who practices strange customs—a witch. To Agnes, she is simply Grandma.
Seeking help for a snakebite, Henry, son of the mayor, finds himself in Meme’s care. Though unnerved by the unconventional herbalist, her beautiful granddaughter, Agnes infatuates him. His mother reasons the snake is a manifestation of the devil, but before fate can bring them together, Agnes must make a choice. Learn the ways of nature to heal or marry her true love.
Agnes makes a choice, but is it one she can live with for the rest of her life?
