Fiery vixen Silk Moreaux will do anything to get what she wants. Lying, stealing and even killing don't weigh on her conscience. But when a prophetess, Big Mama, warns her that she'll come to a tragic end if she doesn't change her wicked ways, Silk moves to a small town in Pennsylvania to reinvent herself. With a sweet temperament, Silk endears herself to the community - especially the men, who compete for her affection. She becomes especially close with grieving widower Raymond Dixon, who expects a hefty insurance payout. Can Silk's greed ever be satisfied?
