On a small isolated island, there's a community that lives by its own rules. Boys grow up knowing they will, one day, reign inside and outside the home, while girls know they’ll be married and pregnant within moments of hitting womanhood. But before that time comes, there is an island ritual; every summer children are turned out onto their doorsteps to roam wild. It’s at the end of one of these summers that one of the younger girls witnesses something she was never supposed to see. And she returns home, muddy and terrified, clutching in her small hand a truth that could unravel their carefully constructed island world forever.
