Independent, tart-tongued, and unorthodox, herbalist-healer Grace sticks out like a witch’s teat in a God-fearing community. When the court orders a trial by water, Grace is dunked into the waters of Lynnhaven River. Will Grace sink or float? Is she innocent or guilty?

Cast: Ivan Ewert, Frank Gaughan, Matt Hellyer, Jenna Payne, Kevin Pollack, Rachel Proulx, Karen Schmiel, Sean Quinn, Andrea Uppling, and Clarissa Yearman.
