Set in 1607, a group of British adventurers led by the greedy governor of the Virginia Company, John Ratcliffe, and including a fearless soldier named John Smith, have set sail for the New World aboard The Susan Constant, seeking gold and other treasures. Meanwhile, in Virginia, a beautiful young Native American woman named Pocahontas, the daughter of Chief Powhatan, ponders her path in life and dreams about what lies "just around the riverbend." Should she marry Kocoum, the stern warrior her father has chosen for her, or does destiny have something else planned for her? She turns to her forest friends — Meeko, a mischievous raccoon, a feisty hummingbird named Flit and Grandmother Willow, a 400-year-old mystical spirit residing in an ancient tree — for friendship and advice.
