Summary
Set against the 1840s westward migration of the Mormons, Dora, a young woman, and her family join a Mormon wagon train. Dora is pursued by two men, one a recent convert, the other a scheming elder with a stable of wives. The elder wants her in his harem. When the mother kills herself from revulsion towards polygamy, the daughter must consider her own future and the man she loves -- ldsvideo.com
