After catching wind about the Colony, the newest outpost in Brooklyn, explorer Davey Boone visits the Bushwick territory to survey the land and determine if it's prime for colonization. During his travels, he encounters several characters of the new frontier: homesteading Europeans, a seasoned pioneer woman determined to make it on her own, two Black freeman still searching for the lost promises of the American government, and, of course, natives.
