The year is 1929, and the newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton travel to the Smokey Mountains in North Carolina, where they plan to build a timber empire. George has already lived in the lumberjack camp long enough to have made a local girl pregnant, but Serena is new to the mountains. She takes the challenges of the new environment with open arms and is quickly regarded as equal among men. The tragedy strikes them, however, when Serena loses her unborn child and learns that she can never get pregnant again. The thought of not being able to produce an heir makes Serena vengeful with grief, and her vengeance causes their marriage to slowly disintegrate.
