At the beginning of the 17th century, three ships arrive in "The New World," to found the settlement of Jamestown, in what will become the colony of Virginia. The English see a pristine Eden, and the inhabitants of the great native civilization see invaders. Captain John Smith--sent on a reconnaissance mission to scope out "the Naturals'" fortifications--is quickly captured and sentenced to death by the chief. At the last moment the chief's favorite daughter, Pocahontas, throws herself upon Smith and begs her father to spare his life. The passionate and noble young native woman and the ambitious soldier of fortune find themselves torn between the undeniable requirements of civic duty and the inescapable demands of the heart. Love, loss, and discovery animate the story, an elegiac celebration of the America that was ... and the America that was yet to come

This is a film about the conflict between nature and grace, the agonizing mystery of God, and the meaning of life itself. The death of his brother forces Jack O'Brien to confront his past, which is dominated by his difficult relationship with his father.

His mother was a gentle, kind woman who often allowed her own needs and desires to give way to those of her husband and children. As Jack's memories come flooding back--of the course of a Texas summer in the 1950s--viewers observe Jack's evolving relationship with his parents, his younger brother, and God, while adult Jack questions the meanings of life, love, and family
