Synopsis

It's 1743, and Jamaica simmers with a fragile peace, three years after the First Maroon War. But Willow, daughter of the legendary Nanny, can't forget the treaty's injustices. Her mother's defiance burns within her, and a daring act threatens to ignite a new rebellion.

Joined by her steadfast companion, Kai, and an unlikely alliance—including Aiyanna, descendant of a Taino priestess—they stumble upon an ancient relic. It reveals the island's forgotten secrets, offering a perilous path to defy the British. But whispers of their actions reach unwelcome ears.

Betrayal shadows every step, and one misstep could plunge them all back into war. As the stakes rise, the Alliance must confront an impossible choice: is defying oppression worth sacrificing those they love and the hard-won peace?
