Lumber baron Noah Mackenzie has a bitter history with the Algonquin forest, and now he's trying to clear-cut the part he considers his own. In the remote Maine town of Abenaki Juntion, only Madeleine Cody stands up to Mackenzie. Using her small newspaper, The Forest Sentinel, she has long tried to peacefully stop the excessive logging. But when radical Adam Gabriel arrives at Abenaki Junction, he proposes a new and dangerous form of protest. Gabriel pushes both Madeleine and Mackenzie to defend what they love - no matter the cost.
