Fermanagh, Irish countryside, 1885. On her 23rd birthday, Beth, who lives on a remote farm with Billy Winters, her tyrannical stepfather, whom she can barely stand, prepares to flee from such a suffocating life with the help of the seductive Liam Ward, without being aware that her decision will unearth deeply buried secrets a long time ago.
On the day of her 23rd birthday, Beth hopes to escape home. But with the day fast approaching, can she can hold her nerve?
Beth decides to tell Mercy that she is leaving Fermanagh, but Mercy protests and exclaims it will break her heart —and Billy's too. Beth puts her plan to run away with Liam into action but a suspicious and very drunk Billy questions Beth —is there anything she has to tell him?
Planning on eloping with Ward, Beth steals Billy's gold and leaves. The Dummy stops her and issues a dire warning. Who is out to hurt her and why? Beth will have her vengeance.
