The storied life of Winston Churchill, Britain’s legendary leader in the war against Nazism, is coming to an end. But Churchill holds a secret, one he is driven to disclose before death.
Could it be that Churchill was descended, through his American mother, from Indigenous people of North America? Few people would believe it, as he well knows. But Churchill’s certainty that he possesses actual ancestral memories from this inheritance gave him the fortitude to stand, almost alone, against Hitler.
As he nears his end, Churchill learns that William Cull, a student from Newfoundland has arrived in London—a descendant and namesake of a notorious frontiersman and alleged persecutor of the Beothuk in the early 1800s.
Churchill summons Cull to his home in London, disrupting the young man’s life, to hear and record the great man’s mystery, in an uncertain race against time.
