Based on the sketchy details of the lost colony of Roanoke. In 1587
John White led a group of almost 200 men, women, and children to the new world, specifically to what is now Roanoke, Virginia.
The legend tells of White having to return to England for supplies, leaving behind his family including newly born granddaughter
Virginia Dare. A task that should have brought him back the next spring instead was delayed over two years as war broke out
between England and Spain, inhibiting any plans to return. Once White makes his return they find the town empty and forsaken.
Despite searches and the mysterious clues left by the colonialists (including “the word “Croatoan” carved
into a tree), no bodies are ever found. Several years later an acquaintance of White’s in England receives the final
communication ever from the mysterious man; a sort of purging of the soul.
This historically based limited series follows
that man’s search for the truth, a search which ends upon his death but is picked up almost 400 years later by his decedent,
a feisty and determined College sophomore. Transport back and forth from the days of the colonialists, the missions that came
before them and sealed their fate, and the 4 century search for truth; all along the way dogged by the eerie appearances of
a ghostly child believed to be Virginia Dare.
