Journeying to 1914 Hawaii as a mail-order "picture bride," Korean-born Jin finds her hopes for education and a better life devastated by the realities of a rushed marriage to an embittered laborer; a situation throughout which she works to overcome limited opportunities and prejudice in order to improve circumstances for her fellow brides
