Beth and Carl, a young married couple go for a weekend at their cottage in the park at the Catskill Mountain resort. Only they find themselves in a time warp back to the revolutionary war and don't know how to get back. The cold October wilderness of 1777 takes them into the heart of the war where they are escorted to a farm where they would be safe. But only one Indian chief known to have powers of magic can help them back to the future. They wait for him to come to the farm where they have taken up residence and learn what it's like back in those days. Will they get back to their time or will they have to remain in the past?
