San Francisco in the 1890s is a town of contradictions - home to a respectable middle class, but with the Wild West lingering in the imagination... Lizzie Hayes, a middle-aged spinster, is praised for her volunteer work with the Ladies' Relief and Protection Society, known as the 'Brown Ark.' Lizzie is waiting for a spark that will liberate her from convention. When the wealthy, ill-reputed Mary Ellen Pleasant shows up at the Brown Ark with an orphan, Lizzie is drawn to them. It is the beautiful Mrs Pleasant, object of suspicion because of her mysterious past and rumoured voodoo practise, who holds the key to freeing Lizzie's rebellious nature.
