Diana, the ethereal, larger-than-life feminist commune leader, prepares Marion to become the vessel for all of the rage and suffering of the commune – and of women everywhere.
Marion and the other women on the commune take their revenge on Chuck and Howie as scapegoats for the sins of mankind?
But will their brutal justice resolve the seemingly endless cycle of violence, or will it continue until it devours the entire island-and perhaps even the entire world?
