Synopsis: Summer heats up in rural Louisiana beside Eve’s Bayou as the Batiste family tries to survive the secrets they’ve kept and the betrayals they’ve endured.
Louis Batiste (Samuel L. Jackson), the local
town doctor with a special bedside manner, is a loving father and
philandering husband. His wife Roz (Lynn Whitfield) is forced to admit
her family is falling apart when her younger daughter, Eve (Jurnee
Smollett), witnesses one of her father’s infidelities. Struggling to
make sense of what she has seen, Eve turns to her older sister Cisely,
who dismisses her in fear of the truth, and then to her Aunt Mozelle
(Debbi Morgan), a known psychic and rumored black widow. Unable to find
the the understanding she is looking for, Eve decides to take matters
into her own hands. As the heat rises so does the tension. For the
Batiste family, the ties that bind may not be strong enough to keep them
together, and what they learn will change their lives forever.
