Seizing the chance to leave the Deacon home, Lulu marries Ninian and sets off to begin a new life. However, Ninan's past is discovered, destroying their relationship. Lulu reluctantly returns to the Deacon home, faced with the dreadful dilemma of telling the truth or lying to save the family's reputation.
