Emily is spellbound by the exotic stranger who sets up his stall in the market square. However, she has competition for the herbalist's attentions. The women of her small town are all mesmerised by the visitor who, they say, can perform miracles. When Emily discovers the miracle-worker's dark side, her world turns upside down. She may be naive, but she has a fierce sense of right and wrong. With his fate lying in her hands, Emily must make a decision. To make the herbalist pay for his sins? Or let him escape to cast his spell on another place?
