Based on the real life 'Book of Negroes' this is the imagined story of a young African muslim villager, kidnapped and shipped to the indigo plantations of South Carolina as a slave, who is evacuated to Nova Scotia after the American War of Independence and later shifts to Sierra Leone. It's a fictional telling of the extraordinary story told in Simon Schama's 'Rough Crossings'.
