"Under These Same Stars" is the story of Céladon, a mixed-race hunter who falls in love with a Native American slave woman but can't get her to run away into the wilderness with him. Céladon convinces another slave girl, who was the favorite of British soldiers, to run away with him. The girl ends up dead under mysterious circumstances, which causes something of an international incident between the French and British colonists of the area.
The incident was documented by historian Carl Ekberg, in his book, "Stealing Indian Women," on which the movie is based.
