Elsie holds Algie captive in the basement of her father's unfinished church. Algie, the mastermind of a notorious scamming operation in Jamaica, executed her sister, brother-in-law and nephew. Her death was as a result of trying to expose Algie's attempt to extort her father. Using maroon combat tactics, Elsie captures Algie. She administers heavy-handed punishment, juxtaposed with a lesson in Jamaican history, while sewing a quilt. She struggles with the notion of forgiveness as justice may not be served to her satisfaction by the penal system; ending his life seems more appropriate.
