In the post-Civil War period, our hero Matthew Wilson, during a trip to see his partner in New Orleans, finds himself stranded in the deadly uncharted swamp with no tools or help. On his journey back to civilization, he encounters a deranged domestic prisoner and his wife, deadly wildlife, and many other threats.

Matthew Wilson, during a trip to see his partner in New Orleans, finds himself stranded in the uncharted swamp with no tools or help.
