In 1757, French troops with the help of the Hurons conquered Fort Williams. The British Colonel Munro is expecting Captain Heyward with his two daughters, who are on their way to see him, but are led astray by their scout Smart Fox and brought to the Hurons. Hawk Eye and Chingachgook and his son Uncas help prevent the plan. On the run through the wilderness, a tender love develops between Cora and Uncas as well as between Alice and Heyward. After the successful "return" of his daughters to the besieged fort, Munro negotiates an armistice with the French, which the Hurons use to recapture the girls and the Mohicans. Hawk Eye can free Alice and Heyward, but cannot prevent the deaths of Uncas and Cora.
"Admittedly without cruelty, but staged listless and boring."
