1645. Guadeloupe, French West Indies. Ibátali, a native Kalinago (one of the Caribbean’s first nations), is married to a French settler. She takes Olaudah, an African, on a journey during which he could lose his freedom and above all, his life. She is willing to sacrifice him to save herself. But their wounds bring them closer. Will they manage to restore their humanity and escape their colonial fate; one destined to be exterminated, and the other destined to be enslaved?
