This play takes place in South Carolina in 1780 during the American Revolution, when a mother and her daughter are going about their daily farm chores when they see an American soldier running from the British. The mother and daughter decide to hide the American soldier from the British and help him return to Charleston, and their help allows the American soldier to warn the Continental Army about the British position.
