A lonely minister's daughter, Alma Winemiller, is a spinster living in a rural Mississippi town. She finds her only solace in a secret lifelong love for the boy-next-door, now grown into the handsome ladies' man Dr. John Buchanan. Eventually, Alma is tortured by her unrequited passion and begins to make desperate attempts to get his attention. But her repressed nature clashes with John's wanton ways, leading to a climactic battle of wills that changes them both forever. Riveting and intense, this sultry production transports you to the oppressive and sweltering summer of Mississippi to experience the unrelenting power of desire.
