The Cutler family ship Eagle is captured in the 1780s, a time when America is weak and nations like the Barbary States of North Africa are preying on its commerce. Richard Cutler is sent to negotiate a ransom for his brother Caleb and the crew.

After learning that a woman of previous affection, Anne-Marie Helvétian, is in danger, he rescues her and her daughters from the guillotine, and with the revolutionaries in hot pursuit, their escape becomes a desperate race, with the lives of all at stake.
