The carefree existence of narrator Kofi, the year-old son of a West African Ashanti chief, is shattered when the family's slave sells him to a slave trader in Recaptured after a brief escape.

As revenge, the wealthy man orders Caroline's abduction by the members of a white slavery ring who cater to the perverted desires of the aristocracy.
