Dreams, midwives, herbalists: It is the 1960s in Alabama when black herbalist Emmaline is confronted in dreams as well in our reality by a fae, the White Lady. She wants to deal one of her three children in return for prosperity and safety.
This political story is drawing a line from the start of the civil rights movement to contemporary times. It integrates slave voodoo traditions, Appalachian folk magic with the expected turmoils in a wonderful setting of a black neighborhood. Not in a horrific, flashy way but with quiet, calm moments and authentic characters.
