As a young woman, rich Charlotte Hollis was planning to elope with her lover, a married man John Mayhew. During a family party at a southern plantation owned by her parents, she found John murdered. Almost forty years later, she lives alone on that same plantation. She never leaves her home because everyone thinks she was the murderer. The only support she has is her housekeeper Velma. When the local authorities decide to build a road across her property, ghosts of past awaken.
