Peter Smith is a runaway slave. Escaping the plantation after being nearly whipped to death, the freed man goes in search of his family. His arduous travels take him across the swamps of Louisiana. In the tropical climate, he moves steadily, careful of the oncoming hunters. People are out for his life, and the treacherous terrain that he travels, with the cold-blooded assassins at his tale, is unforgiving. Surviving the swamps and making his way North, Peter joins the Union Army to face new perils. The scars from his torture are noticed and publicized as an example of the sheer cruelty of slavery.
