Ruth, an Amish woman, was 'set-aside', informally divorced, as she was barren. Reuben was a long divorced and reclusive farmer, now seeking something, which had been long missing from his life-his soul. By accident, by chance, or by fate, he discovers Ruth and sets her free from her state of nothingness, from her prison, but at a terrible cost. And with her freedom, old mysteries and injustices are uncovered, both within the Amish community and the nearby society. Greed, pride, envy, revenge, love and innocence all come into conflict, as two souls seek to find each other.
