Violet follows the transformative journey of a young woman who embarks on a bus trip across the American South in the 1960s. Violet, who bears a facial scar from a childhood accident, seeks physical and emotional healing by traveling to Tulsa, Oklahoma, with the hope that a televangelist can perform a miracle. Along the way, she encounters a diverse array of characters who influence her perceptions of beauty, self-worth, and love. Violet explores themes of identity, acceptance, and the impact of societal standards on one’s self-image.
