Treachery and murder lead Jamie and Tanaka on the trail of a deranged deserter intent on personal revenge amid a looming war between the Choctaws and the English.
As the English army advances on the Choctaw nation, Jamie and Tanaka enlist the aid of a young Lieutenant, William McBride, who is sympathetic to the Choctaw cause. Their quest for peace is thwarted by Captain John Davenport, who orders their arrest then leads his men into a crushing defeat at the hands of the Choctaws. Court martialed for desertion under fire, Davenport seeks revenge on all those he holds responsible for his fall from grace.
As all these forces come together for the final struggle to survive, Jamie and Tanaka face their greatest challenge yet. Is their will strong enough to overcome those who seek to destroy them, and can their love protect them from the hazards of the wilderness itself?
