Captain John Smith led a ragged group of English sailors and soldiers to the New World to plunder its riches in England (or, more precisely, for Governor Ratcliffe, who comes along for the ride). Meanwhile, in this new world, chief Powhatan, has pledged his daughter, Pocahontas, to be married to the villages greatest warrior. Pocahontas, however, has other ideas. She had a vision of a spinning arrow, a vision that believes tells her change is coming. Your life will change when the English ship ground near her village.
