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 a philandering husband. His wife Roz (Lynn Whitfield) is forced to admit her family is falling apart when her younger daughter, Eve, witnesses one of her father’s infidelities. Struggling to make sense of what she has seen, Even 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 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.
