While trying to outrun his past and the hunters he meets Tanna (Lola Evans). A young wealthy British woman who passed as white. Secretly born to a Melanesian mother on the Solomon Islands, forcing her and her father to flee London for Nova Scotia. Tanna’s father pushes her into an arranged marriage with a white merchant.
