Daniel and Lori love each other, yet to live as one in 1856, they must escape from the unyielding society that imprisons them. Lori was born a slave in North Carolina, yet by chance was raised alongside Daniel in a wealthy abolitionist household.
The sudden death of Daniel's mother catapults Lori back into bondage. Relegated to chattel on a rice plantation, Lori lives in constant fear under the tormenting scrutiny of Daniel's wretched aunt.
After Daniel fails to convince his relatives to free Lori, he is compelled to devise a daring escape. Although a life-threatening endeavor for both of them, Lori's freedom is priceless to Daniel, and he's willing to pay such a price for her love.
