High school student Enoch Miller has lived in the town of Narragansett, Rhode Island, his entire life but has never learned of the Indian tribe after which it is named. He’s assigned to research a monument to Chief Canonchet, former leader of the Narragansett Tribe, as a project for his history class. Enoch’s entire conception of his hometown is shattered upon learning about an incident of local colonial-era genocide which he’d never heard discussed in his entire life: the Great Swamp Massacre. Shocked, but determined to learn the truth behind his town’s history, Enoch visits the seemingly forgotten site of the massacre where he faces the spectre of history.
