And the number of suspects is huge. They may be English, people from the Hudson’s Bay company, and Indians who may be in League with the British, intent on driving the French out of their territory.
The ten-part drama will take viewers to the wild seventeenth century. The plot takes place in a small settlement, in what is now the canadian province of Quebec. In the new world, the Catholic Church sends Jesuit priests to convert the indigenous population. France also brings to its lands “the king’s daughters”, young women who must marry, create families, give birth to children and help the colony flourish.

But their dreams meet with harsh reality. The settlers find themselves in a large unknown world, a dark and dangerous place, long inhabited by the “Iroquois”, who treat their appearance with disdain.
