Storyline

In the mid-twentieth century, Alice Mitchell works as a prostitute on the street. After her situation worsens, she unsuccessfully attempts to reconcile with her estranged family over her homosexuality. She takes shelter at a Christian household and wins them over by falsely adopting their faith, despite opposition from their in-law, Lillian. While there, Alice's infatuation with the family's daughter, Annabel, grows. After Lillian reveals Alice's homosexuality, Alice redoubles her efforts to rid herself of it to no avail as she succumbs to a relationship with Annabel. Their relationship is discovered. In desperation, Alice commits to faith instead and starts a relationship with a man, reconciling her with her parents. But she falters when confronted by Annabel again, struggling to decide between leaving with her and remaining with her own family. Through a final confrontation with Lillian, Alice makes her final choice. Written by Horsehead Cinema

Trivia

The character Alice Mitchell, along with several other characters, were based on real historical figures. Alice Mitchell was a 19th century American murderess from Memphis, Tennessee. She slit the throat of her best friend Freda Myra Ward for rejecting her marriage proposal, and was sentenced to an insane asylum. Dr. Z.B. Henning was Alice's family physician. Lillian Johnson, who was Alice and Freda's friend, was also implicated in the trial; and it was Father Veale, Lillian's reverend, who helped acquit her by testifying to her good character. Annabel was based on "Miss A." (Annabel Lyndstrom-Pier), a subject in case study 155 in Krafft-Ebing's "Psychopathia Sexualis" which was one of the first comprehensive studies outlining deviant sexual behaviors. See more »
