Martha Farnsworth (Nicole Kidman) is the head of a Confederate girls' boarding school located in Virginia during the Civil War. One day, one of the girls, Amy (Oona Laurence), discovers injured Union soldier John McBurney (Colin Farrell) in the woods. She calls Miss Martha, who gets the young man inside and reluctantly tends to his wounds, telling him he'll need to leave as soon as possible.
While there, he asks a teacher, Edwina Dabney (Kirsten Dunst) to run away with him, but before they do, she discovers him in another girl's bed. The girls realize that John is indeed the enemy and get together to teach him a lesson, which leads to dangerous consequence.
Based on Tom Cullinan's novel A Painted Devil and adapted from the 1971 film starring Clint Eastwood.
