Follow the historic 1953 statewide police investigation of polygamy called Operation Seagull as it leads to young Karen Hardy’s Utah farm family. Karen is frightened of police following her family and is publicly humiliated when her first period begins during the sacred ceremony for baptizing the dead in the Salt Lake City temple. She finally tells her friend, “I wish I could be just a normal kid living in a normal place out in the world somewhere.” Public shame and constant fear cloud her dreams of a life where she won’t be punished for the sin of yearning for store-bought clothes, the sin of asking questions, the sin of resisting lies about polygamy, but most alarming, the sin of dodging the leering white haired prophet her family worships as the One Mighty and Strong and who is stalking her as his plural bride to be.
