In Lorain, Ohio, 1941. Eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove prays for the one thing she knows will change her life-eyes as blue as Shirley Temple's. The year the marigolds in Lorain do not bloom, Pecola's life does change-in unexpected and devastating ways. This vivid adaptation of Toni Morrison's Pulitzer Prize-winning debut novel is the heartrending story of three girls coming of age into a world that is equal parts beauty and ugliness, love and hate, triumph and tragedy.
