A gypsy servant girl falls in love with her master but is accused of murder

In 19th century England, Jassy is a young Gypsy girl blessed with the gift of second sight.

Pursued by superstitious villagers, she is rescued by the son of the owner of Mordelaine, a vast stately home. Unfortunately, his father’s drinking and gambling threaten the very ownership of the house.

Despite her humble origins as a servant girl, Jassy must try to use her talents to climb the social ladder and save Mordelaine for the man whom she loves.
