Plot Summary
In the 1940s, Southern midwife Charlie Kate Birch (Gena Rowlands) is given a lucky charm after healing a brutalized black man. In no time at all, her good-for-nothing husband skips town, leaving her happily in charge of the family. Charlie's daughter, Sophia (Mimi Rogers), however, dreams of finding a steadfast man -- but after her first husband dies, her prospects become bleak. Meanwhile, Charlie's granddaughter, Margaret (Susan May Pratt), must compete with their contrasting influences.
