It is 1925, a decade into the U.S.'s occupation of Haiti under the guise of peace-keeping. The occupying force is desperate to control the people. Colvin Donner is the best U.S. Marine tracker and he is sent to capture an elusive rebel hero, Chango Champagne Pepla. Colvin soon discovers the reason why the rebel movement is alive and successful. Consequently, he unleashes a series of inhumane acts that will not only have implications for his personal life but the entire nation when he does capture Chango. After Chango is hung with Colvin's cursed rope, Colvin returns to the United States only to experience some eerie and unexplainable death phenomena involving the rope. These events drive him back to Haiti where he and his son engage in evangelism. In 1945, Colvin's son, Robert meets Moiselle, a country girl with dreams of leaving Haiti. She knows that her only option is to marry a foreigner. She and Robert fall for each other, but what they discover about themselves as they try to make a life under the shadow of the cursed rope is more sinister than they could have imagined.
