When Panther, War Chief of a small Seminole Indian band, attempts to rescue a fellow tribe member from a Floridian plantation, he is captured by the owner, Reddin.
Knowing Reddin will likely kill Panther, Caldia, a half-black slave, secretly frees him.
Reddin decides to make Caldia pay--in his bedroom, but his wife discovers them. Enraged, Reddin murders his wife, makes it look like a Seminole Indian is to blame, and calls in the Military.
Caldia escapes and is deep in the Everglades trying to survive when Panther finds her. With enemies closing in on all sides, the pair face an even greater danger: the forbidden love growing between them.
