Imagine this! A beautiful Creole girl, trapped in a New Orleans bordello, is rescued by a French count and becomes his mistress until he deserts her. After defying all odds and marrying a black jazz musician, she raises five daughters as a respectable matron. That is only the beginning of an intriguing story about the lives of the matriarch's descendants who marry and leave the safe haven of their New Orleans home to start lives of their own in far away places. That's where their paths and the paths of their children deviate in terms of the choices they make and the journeys they take.
