When Virginia Wilder discovers a stack of handwritten letters over a half century old, she unlocks the story of Emily Hodge, a young woman living in Hamilton, Mississippi during the second World War. In a time when a woman's place is in the home, Emily ventures out and falls in love with a young soldier eventually carrying his baby out of wedlock.

With the support of her best friend Wilma Watson and their draft-dodging companion Will Bacon, Emily is able to stand by her convictions in a household dominated by the standards of a salt-of-the-earth father and an unconditionally loving mother.

Despite the disapproval of society, Emily follows her heart to overcome the prejudice of her time.

Rated PG-13 for elements of violence.

Released by Monarch Entertainment. See more credits.
