Ten years ago Princess Sierra was betrayed by her two best friends: one she had been in love with and the other she was forced to marry. They both ran away to America, leaving her behind. Upon her arrival in St. Louis, Sierra seeks the help of the one that she had loved, a Native American by the name of High Wolf. After all, she is certain that her husband left with him, when the three of them were supposed to have run away together to the New World.
