Childless couple Evelyn and Jimmy Davis live on a farm in the middle of nowhere in the 1950s. Times are tough. Financially stretched, they agree to foster a pregnant unwed teenager who has been shipped 'up north' to await the birth of her unplanned baby. Evie and Jimmy are initially judgmental, but Maggie proves to be a welcome breath of fresh air in their otherwise mundane lives. They soon discover they have more in common than just a love of dancing. Each are social outcasts in their own way, and they all harbour secrets and shattered dreams. And as the baby grows, the claustrophobic isolation paired with the community's crippling conformity gradually lead them all into temptation that will change their lives forever.
