After World War II, victorious soldiers came home while newly liberated women had to give up their jobs and return to being mere housewives. Many black women escaped the South in the War years and had vowed never to return. Olivia Pondexter breaks the mold and returns to "rescue" two sisters. Not only does she bring with her a hatbox full of money, she finds herself haunted by the spirit of what she has shamefully tried to forget. What makes matters worse, is that in order to regain the crown of Matriarch she has to make them leave their men behind.
