Description
Condemned for the sin of adultry in puritanical, 18th-century New England, Hester Prynne must wear the scarlet letter "A" on her chest. Enduring her punishment with dignity, she chooses independence, motherhood and love despite the social values of her time. Enduring her public punishment with dignity, Hester grows stronger as the years of her isolation pass. Her lover, however, lives undetected in the community, tormented and weakened by the burden of an unexposed sin. Then, Hester's husband, thought to be lost at sea, returns and coldly plots his revenge.
