Sacagawea is a young Shoshone girl who is forced to marry a French trader. She and her husband are hired by explorers Lewis and Clark to go with them on their journey to the Pacific Ocean, with Sacagawea serving as a translator and sometimes guide. The journey is fraught with danger, from meeting hostile natives to surviving the elements, and Sacagawea must all the while take care of her infant son. She ends up falling in love with Clark, but longs to go back to her tribe.
