This one-hour dramatic series presents the fictionalized account of TRYPHE, a young Frisian woman, against the historical backdrop of the Pequot War and early colonial New England. Tryphe comes to Fort Saybrook, a fugitive from Amsterdam where she had murdered her landlady-cum-pimp. She escapes to New England with the help of LADY Gardiner, a Dutch woman, married to LION, an English soldier recently fighting for the Dutch. Lion’s new job as commander of this small fort at the mouth of the Connecticut River has brought them to the New England and New Netherlands frontiers and home to the Pequot, Nehantic and Mohican Indians. Tryphe strives to reclaim her sexuality, stolen by her landlady and the customers of the Amsterdam brothel. Her several sexual encounters attack the hypocritical and unattainable Puritan ideal of a chaste lifestyle.
