It’:s the 1800s, and in the village of Umuiyi, death has become a way of life. Some must die so that those who remain will thrive. Strong-willed Uremma is the apple of her father’:s eye—:until she refuses to become the docile woman the villagers of Umuiyi expect. When her best friend disappears, Uremma questions the traditions that have governed her family, her friends, her village for generations. She discovers a dark secret, she rebels—:and her life is changed forever. Years later, brothers Odunze and Arinze move from Umuiyi to the big city, seeking happiness and prosperity. But tragedy follows them—:Arinze struggles to rebuild his life after devastating catastrophes befall his home and business: Odunze battles vicious personal demons—: shame, alcoholism, and violence. They meet an old man who knows more than a mere stranger should about Umuiyi. He tells Arinze and Odunze a chilling story, that they first dismiss as superstition—:a story about a promise made generations ago, one that must be paid in blood.
