Orphaned when her parents died in the plague, young Charlotte is sent to a convent until she comes of age. To escape a dreaded arranged marriage, she flees aboard a ship - a ship of virgin brides - bound for the New World. The shipload of females is the first of its kind to land in New Orleans, a pioneer town, where innocence enflames the sexual hunger of men who live without women. Beautiful Charlotte gambles her future, naively pitting two men against each other, until she decides which one can truly teach her the meaning of passion . . .
