Summer 1786. Two fifteen year-old orphan boys have embarked on a ship in Southhampton, Britain, that’s heading for the North-East of the Pacific Ocean. Alexis is of Acadian descent and is looking for his scattered family while his friend Hugh dreams of a better life. But once they arrive on the North American continent, a young starving cougar will disrupt the boys’ destiny…

While wounded Hugh is saved by a fellow crew member, Alexis gets lost in the forest and ends up in an Indigenous village decimated by the smallpox. Amongst the cadavers, a young girl is left alive. She and Alexis will help each other in their fight for survival…
