What do you do when your beliefs are condemned by the rest of society?

Adrian Bean marks the 400 year anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower. A gripping story about one family's journey into the unknown.

Sarah Hargreaves doesn't share her husband Matthew's desire to join the Puritan exiles, but when their son Benjamin is arrested on a trumped-up charge they have little choice but to go. Things go rapidly from bad to worse, and they decide to leave everything behind. Hoping to find peace and like minded souls in a new religious community in America, they spend everything they have left on a ticket to sail on the Mayflower. The journey is long and difficult, and when they finally arrive the family starts to fall apart.
