Good-hearted Annie Wilson, who bears "the gift" of psychic vision, is a recently widowed mother of three young boys in the rural town of Brixton, Georgia. Scorned by some of the narrow-minded town citizens, Annie struggles to support herself and her sons by giving psychic readings to a few of the members of this small community. Annie advises one of them, Valerie, to leave her husband Donnie, a macho town bully. Her visions begin to unravel the town’s dark secrets, and she finds herself in increasing danger as the drowned body of a woman is found. Her "gift" becomes her only hope to save herself and her family.

Filmed on location in Georgia.
