It started with a voice and became an anthem song for generations of Christians to come. John Newton, a young sailor adrift in life and oceans, feels lost. Whilst working aboard a ship one night, and with the weight of his father's reputation and status upon his shoulders, the younger Newton hears a unique voice weave its way between the weather-beaten boards of the ship, and is enchanted. To him, this was a voice like no other. A voice to fall in love with. Following its soft, sweet tones and elegant melodies, John Newton discovers the beautiful sources of the enrapturing sound. The young Miss Polly Catlett. Overcome with the desire to win her affections, John wishes to woo the young Polly's affections, but soon reaches a stumbling block. Polly's Father. Seeing only an aimless young sailor with no good intent, and a reckless nature about him, Polly's father doesn't hesitate in forbidding the young sailor's affections. Despondent, forced into joining the navy and separated from Polly for four years, John begins to to see anew the world around him. Slavery. England and France poised on the brink of war. Green and misery. All these change John, bringing him to a new heart and a new faith. Turing against the very trade which made his family's legacy, John joins the growing fight against slavery. But will Polly stand by this new John Newton against a sea of opposition?
