Sixteen-year-old Katla has just moved from Los Angeles to the sticks of Minnesota. As if it weren't enough that her trendy fashion sense draws stares, she learns to her horror that she's a member of an ancient order of women who decide to whom certain babies will be born. Add to that Wade, the arrogant football star whom Katla regrettably fooled around with, and Jack, a gorgeous farm boy who initially seems to hate her.
