In the 17th century Boston is a small town. But all the townspeople wait for Hester Prynne. The beatiful young woman gets out of prison with a baby in her arms. They call her "sinner". They want to know who the father of the child is. But Hester doesn't give a name. She keeps her secret and wears the scarlet letter "A" on her dress. "A" for adulteress. Only the power of love can make Hester confess her secret.
