Christmas night, 1776. General Washington is losing the Revolutionary War. In a desperate attempt to turn the corner, he plans to cross the Delaware River and lead a surprise attack on Hessian forces in Trenton, New Jersey in the midst of a winter storm. Amongst Washington's troops is 14-year-old Nathan Smith, whose mother has just been murdered by a group of Hessian soldiers. While trying to care for his younger sister and track down his father, Nathan's manhood will be tested and transformed during his special war mission. In this epic tale of battle, tragedy, and independence, Nathan and his fellow Americans fight for freedom despite all the odds being stacked against them.
