1821: After the landlord of Lugdale Estate in Kerry is

assassinated, young Art O’Neill’s innocent father is hanged and Art is 

deported to the cane fields of Jamaica as an indentured servant. On 

Mangrove Plantation he gradually acclimatises to the exotic country 

and unfamiliar customs of the African slaves, and achieves a kind of 

 

Then the new heirs to the plantation arrive. His new owner is Colonel 

Stratford-Rice from Lugdale Estate, the man who hanged his father. Art 

must overcome his hatred to survive the harsh life of a slave and live 

to see the eventual emancipation which

liberates his coloured children. Eventually he is

promised seven gold coins when he finishes his service,

but he doubts his master will part with the coins.

 

One hundred years later in Ireland, a skeleton is discovered

beneath a fallen tree on the grounds of Lugdale Estate. By its

side is a gold coin minted in 1870. Yseult, the owner of the

estate, watches as events unfold, fearful of the long-buried truths 

that may emerge about her family’s past and its links

to the slave trade. As the body gives up its secrets,

Yseult realises she too can no longer hide.
