Into a Depression-era Rocky Mountain village stumbles Grace (Nicole Kidman), on the run from the mob and her mysterious past. Sanctuary is offered - at a price: she must offer her services to the village in any way she can.

Digging deeper into his familiar themes of prejudice and exploitation, he goes beyond female martyrdom into an exposé of the dark recesses of human nature.
