Ten years after exposure to a synthetic hormone in beef killed 50 million American women, the Paternalist Movement has started systematically oppressing those young daughters left behind. 16-year old Avie Reveare is contracted to marry a rich and powerful older man in order to save her father’s flailing business. Rather than being trapped in a loveless, controlling marriage, Avie makes the courageous choice to run.
