In the quiet Acadian village of Grand-Pre, Nova Scotia, lives the beautiful and beloved Evangeline. She is betrothed to Gabriel, but before they can marry, France and England declare war. The Acadians, bound by allegiance to England but by ties of kinship to France, refuse to take up arms. As a result, they are forcefully deported (most ending up in Louisiana). The British set fire to the village as the Acadian men are herded abourad a man-o-war. Evengeline must set sail for unknown lands. Wandering the American wilderness, she begins the search for her lost love.
