Over the course of a few short days in 1875, an ex-slave named Jefferson inherits his former owner’s estate and is told by a Native American tribe that he may be The Falcon, a legendary hero from ancient prophecy. He goes from being poor to exceptionally rich. Suddenly, he is a man of tremendous influence matched only by the responsibility he bears as the leader of a close-knit community of ex-slaves known as The Family and now the tribe following its mythic figure. But for 20 years, he has hidden from everyone that he is a liar and a murderer. To lead well, Jefferson must learn a hard and simple truth: A good person is still a good person, even if they have done a bad thing. If he does not learn, he will be unable to lead or protect his loved ones as the attempts to take his life and fortune put everyone in peril.
