An epic version of Nathaniel Hawthorne's enduring novel of Puritan America in search of its soul.

Hester Prynne - condemned for a sin of passion - must wear forever the scarlet letter "A" on her chest. Proud, courageous and defiant, Hester chooses to assert her independence, motherhood and love despite the social values of her time.

Enduring her public punishment with dignity, Hester grows stronger as the years of her isolation and ostracism pass. Her lover, however, lives undetected in the community, tormented and weakened by the burden of an unexposed sin. And Hester's husband, thought to be lost at sea, resurfaces and coldly plots his revenge.
