Mami is the unspoken leader of the Burn, sharing her Caribbean herb lore and leading her followers in an ancient spiritual practice. When her granddaughter Ti-Jeanne turns 19, she is destined to succeed her grandmother and become a Priestess. But when Mami tries to prepare her to take part in the same possession ritual that killed her mother, Ti-Jeanne refuses and flees with her young love Tony to the other side of the Burn in hopes of leaving the spirit business behind.However, when a drug lord rises to take control of the remaining population and uses his right hand man Crack to torment the Burn dwellers and prepare them for sale to mainlanders as smart slaves, Ti-Jeanne can no longer refuse her other-worldly powers as a priestess. Can Ti-Jeanne handle the power of the spirits she has been so afraid of and save her people, or will her fear kill her?
