Josiah Cole, an 18th century Bristol dockside businessman, gambles everything to join the big traders of the city. A marriage to well-connected Frances Scott provides Josiah with an entree to a higher class. Trading her social contacts for Josiah's protection, Frances finds her life and fortune depend upon the respectable trade of sugar, rum and slaves. Into her new world comes Mehuru and, from opposite ends of the slave trade, Mehuru and Frances confront each other and their need for freedom.
