For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man.

Back in New York City each begins a risky journey as they try to escape the family curse. The Owens children cannot escape love even if they try, just as they cannot escape the pains of the human heart.
