Young Lukas Bienman, an indentured servant in 19th century Prussia, witnesses a murder by the ruthless Count who frames Lukas’s father for the crime. After helping his father escape, Lukas flees with the Count’s sister and her beautiful daughter, Ursula to Canada – the home of his estranged grandfather. Disaster follows when Ursula’s mother dies of smallpox and Ursula herself is kidnapped by con artists. Braving river rapids, Lukas rescues Ursula and the pair set out through the treacherous wilderness and across the savage American frontier, encountering many adventures before being reunited with their families.
