The true story of Virginia's Grace Sherwood, who was the last person to be tried and convicted as a witch in the state of Virginia. Her accusers were many, and while her husband lived they both went to court often to try to defend their reputation and name.  She was a midwife and healer, and sometimes the line of demarcation between "healer" and "witch" was hard for people to understand in the age of superstition.
