Moll is 27 years old and still lives with her demented father and her dominating mother on the British island of Jersey. Then she meets the free-spirited poacher Pascal, and quickly falls for him, to the displeasure of her wealthy family. Their relationship is put to the test by the attention of the entire island. The local population has been banned from a number of murders of young women, and Pascal is the police’s favorite suspect. Moll remains loyal to her new love, which is her armor against the meddling of the community. She too has a secret, and their secrets reinforce their ban. But how dangerous or harmless is that?
