It's 1922, and eugenics --- the movement dedicated to racial purity and good breeding --- has taken hold in America. After years of being confined to hospitals, Rowan is recruited at 16 to play a born cripple in a county fair eugenics exhibit. But gutsy, outspoken Dorchy befriends Rowan and helps her realize her own inner strength and bravery. The two escape to a summer camp on an island where they discover something is happening to the children. Rowan must find a way to stop the horrors on the island…if she can escape them herself.
