In 1879 maverick Silas morton establishes a college on the Mississippi River. Forty years later, his granddaughter, a student at the college, faces the threat of federal prison as she embraces her ancestor's legcy and stands up for students' rights to free speech.
Iowa's local history shapes this 1921 drama, inspired by Glaspell's family history in Davenport and her own grandfather's admiration of Black Hawk.
