    In pre-Civil War New Orleans high society, Vanessa Williams portrays the beautiful African American daughter of a wealthy white plantation owner and his kept mistress. Fighting her family's wishes, society's rules and rampant racism, she rejects the traditions of an arranged marriage and sets out on a journey fraught with danger and forbidden desires. This inspiring true story of heroism and love illuminates the extraordinary life of Henriette Dalille, the first African-American saint.
