She is the only child of a highly respected family in an eighteenth-century South American coastal town. She is sent to a convent to be kept under observation as people believe she is possessed. And Father Cayetano Delaura, who had already seen a girl with long copper hair in his dreams, comes across the cell Sierva is locked up in. He begins to attend to her with holy water and other sacramental oils. But shockingly, he finds himself falling in love with her.
