1923: Niagara Falls, Canada. Evangeline Murray, a young widow from Ohio, is recruited by the Women's Freedom Movement to recreate the daring 1910 feat of Annie Edson Taylor, the first person in recorded history to plunge over Niagara Falls in a barrel and survive. Evangeline believes that the stunt will bring her fame and fortune, and freedom from her late husband's gambling debts. Joshua McClaren, an enigmatic, battle-scarred veteran of World War One, reluctantly agrees to launch the headstrong Evangeline.
