A unique story of seven ordinary non-enslaved women accused of murder, who escaped, kidnapped and fought to ultimately give their lives for the future of...a little girl.Three African-American women arrive at Bullet's cabin with a white woman in tow and a dead white man in their wake. Bullet used to help slaves cross to the North and the three are seeking her help, but ever since her brother was hung Bullet has sworn off guiding. Her brother's widow, a Native-American woman named Rain, and their little girl live with her. At first Bullet and Rain don't want to help, but then they decide it would be for the best. It becomes clear that the white woman (who might have "black blood" in her veins) was complicit in the killing of her husband and eventually joins with them to fight against a posse that comes after the women. Throughout the play, the women reveal their personal histories as they grow to trust one another.
