Nights before Darla's 21st birthday, she is told of The Belleford women's great power that she will inherit. Darla's girlfriend is a tad angry with her. Oh, and the family cat, Winston, has started talking. While studying her induction into the family coven, Sherry, Darla's grandmother, falls sick. Darla must negotiate her family's legacy, her power and the love of her life...all before she's able to drink.
