    Moments after Lisbeth is born, she’s taken from her mother and handed over to an enslaved wet nurse, Mattie, a young mother separated from her own infant son in order to care for her tiny charge. Thus begins an intense relationship that will shape both of their lives for decades to come. Though Lisbeth leads a life of privilege, she finds nothing but loneliness in the company of her overwhelmed mother and her distant, slave-owning father.

    Bereits Augenblicke nachdem Lisbeth geboren ist, wird sie ihrer Mutter weggenommen und Mattie übergeben, einer jungen Sklavin, die man von ihrem eigenen Kind getrennt hat, damit sie dem Baby als Amme dienen kann. So beginnt eine intensive Beziehung, die das Leben der beiden Frauen auf Jahrzehnte hinaus prägen wird. Obwohl Lisbeth ein privilegiertes Leben führt, findet sie bei ihrer überforderten Mutter und ihrem distanzierten Vater, der Sklaven hält, nichts als Einsamkeit.
