Adam Fletcher is no stranger to fist fights, but when he bloodies the nose of the son of an official, the local magistrate offers Adam two choices: jail or an apprenticeship. Choosing the latter, he finds himself bound apprentice to a reclusive old man with a secret, colorful past. Soon, he's asked to spy on his master as a suspected smuggler and it forces him to make some hard decisions.
