Follow the River synopsis

In 1750s Virginia, a tribe of Shawnee Indians abducts pregnant settler Mary Ingles (Sheryl Lee) and her two young children, while her husband (Tim Guinee) manages to avoid capture. Enduring her captivity with dignity, Ingles earns the admiration and love of the Shawnee chief, Wildcat (Eric Schweig). Even though she shares some of his feelings, Ingles still dreams of returning home. Plotting escape, she joins another prisoner, Gretel (Ellen Burstyn), when the time is right to make their move.
