Ethan Wate (Ehrenreich) has had the same recurring dream for months. A mysterious young girl is waiting for him on a Civil War battlefield. Ethan desperately wants to be with her, but there is an unknown dangerâ€”and each time a lightning bolt cracks like a gunshot, killing Ethan before he ever reaches the girl.
After Ethan’s mundane world is shaken up with the arrival of Lena Duchannes (Englert), the beautiful and enigmatic niece of Macon Ravenwood (Jeremy Irons), he finds himself immediately drawn to her, even though destruction seems to inexplicably follow her and it becomes apparent that she is a Caster, with powers beyond her control.
The town, led by conservative Mrs. Lincoln (Emma Thompson), wants her banished. Even Gatlin’s all-knowing librarian, Amma (Viola Davis), is afraid history may repeat itselfâ€”a history of family secrets and a curse that looms for Lena as she approaches her 16th birthday. It is that time when a Caster is chosen by the forces of either the Light or the Dark. But Lena’s fate may already be sealed by the curse that draws both her and Ethan into a tangled web of spells and peril from which there may be no escape.
