Two years after her husband goes missing, intelligent, strong-willed Hester Prynne has a child and gets branded an adulteress. Further defying Puritan ideals, she refuses to reveal the father’s identity and is condemned to wear a scarlet A to mark her shame. Then her estranged husband shows up—bent on revenge. This brand-new adaptation of the classic novel takes a modern approach to the secret life of a puritanical society – and reveals that the story of Hester Prynne is not so far removed from our modern world.
Based on the novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne.
