1800S - CORNWALL, ENGLAND Kerena Dugan wants a better life. Her husband, Jeremy, is abusive to her and their two-year-old son, Matthew. Fearing for their lives, she flees her home with her son, searching for safety. As she nears the village of Tremorna, she devises a plan. She changes the boy's name to Tommy and leaves him in a place where Jeremy won't find him. Satisfied that Tommy's safe, she sets out to make a new life for herself. Jeremy is caught smuggling and is sent to prison. Nine years later, unaware of Kerena's actions, he goes home to find--no one. Enraged, he goes on an all-out search for his family. Tommy grows up in the confines of an orphanage. A rebellious young boy, he gets involved with a crew of smugglers headed by Jock Hastings, a fisherman. Jock also happens to be the owner of the Owler, an inn that serves as a front for these illegal, but profitable operations. Tommy, Jeremy, and Kerena's lives intertwine, as Kerena's secret unravels amidst sinister activities, shadowy and perilous.
