Rufus, the white son of a plantation owner, is drowning, and Dana has been summoned across the years to save him, as he will father the daughter who will become Dana's ancestor. After the first summons, Dana is drawn back, again and again, to the plantation to protect Rufus and each time, the sojourns become longer and more dangerous until it is uncertain whether or not her life will end, long before it has even begun
