John Smith comes to the "New World," otherwise known as America, in search of adventure. He lands in Virginia, and he finds more than he bargained for. When he gets into an altercation with one of the natives, who were previously peaceful toward the settlers, he finds himself under threat of execution. Only the influence of Pocahontas, the daughter of Chief Powhattan, is able to spare his life. After this incident, Pocahontas and John become friends and eventually lovers, but they are separated time and again by circumstances beyond their control. After one disappearance, Pocahontas believes that he is dead, and she marries a distinguished Englishman named John Rolfe and travels to England with him, where she is surprised to encounter John Smith once again.
