It's 1856 and the states are on the verge of a civil war, brother against brother, father against son. George Morgan and his friends just want to be left alone. Tired of being harassed because of the color of their skin, this determined group migrates from Kentucky to the free state of Indiana. There they hope to find a place where they can live free from persecution. The way is hard-a river takes a child, they're threatened by a slave-catcher. But in the wilderness, these hardy souls carve out a new community only to find they haven't escaped the troubles. With the conflict engaging the whole country, each man must now search his heart to discover what price he's willing to pay to be free.
